A 28-year-old home guard succumbed to wounds he sustained in a road accident he met with while on duty for the G20 Summit, police said on Tuesday.
Yogesh, a resident of Nuh, succumbed Sunday night at a hospital in Gurugram. He had got married eight months ago, police said.
According to police, Yogesh was hit by a speeding scooter on September 8 when he was deployed at a checkpoint near the IFFCO Chowk flyover to screen motorists for the G20 Summit.
He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
Praveen Chauhan, Yogesh’s brother-in-law, said Yogesh was recruited as a home guard in Gurugram Police four years ago.
Ankit Raghav, his brother, demanded Yogesh be accorded the status of a “martyr” and his family be given financial compensation because he died on duty.
A senior police officer said an FIR has been registered in the matter and the accident is being investigated.
