19 year old Uttar Pradesh topper, Ms. Sudiksha Bhati killed in a road accident in Bulandshahr. It was found that two men chased her on a bike and tried to harass her after which she was killed. She had overcome various struggles to become a topper. She was in India for a vacation when she was killed. 

Atul Srivastava, SP of Bulandshahr says the girl was killed on her way to Aurangabad by the bikers. A case has been lodged and the bikers are being searched for. Alok Singh says she was chased, harassed and intimidated on the road. The bikers performed stunts and her motorcycle rammed into the tree due to which she died. 

A 19 year old Ms. Sudiksha Bhati from western Uttar Pradesh, who overcame many odds to secure 98 per cent in her class 12th board exams in 2018 and then went on to receive a full-time scholarship at a prestigious university in the United States, was killed on Monday (10th August 2020) in a road accident in the state’s Bulandshahr district.

The family of Ms. Sudiksha Bhati, who died, has alleged that she met with an accident because two men on a bike chased the 19 year old who was on a separate motorcycle with her uncle and tried to harass her. The district administration has said the officials probing the case have found no proof of harassment. However, a CCTV footage that shows the two men is being investigated by the police.

The Ms. Sudiksha Bhati, from Bulandshahr had returned from US in June amid the novel coronavirus pandemic and was scheduled to go back in August. Two years back, she had made it to the prestigious Babson College in Massachusetts after she topped her district in CBSE class 12 exams in the Humanities stream.

On Monday (10th August 2020) she, her uncle and her cousin left on a bike from their village in UP’s Gautam Budh Nagar and were on their way to a relative’s place in Bulandshahr’s Sikandrabad to get some academic documents from a school, when the incident took place, according to the family.

The eldest among six siblings, Ms. Sudiksha Bhati had an envious academic record. Her father runs a tea shop.

Sudiksha’s journey from a village in Uttar Pradesh to a prestigious American university was one of grit and determination. She was one of the few girls in her village who had gone to a school. 

A student of Vidya Gyan School, an initiative of the Shiv Nadar Foundation, Sudiksha had scored a perfect 100 in two subjects – History and Economics; she scored 99 in Geography.

The incident triggered a massive outrage on social media and took a political turn after BSP chief Mayawati condemned the incident and demanded action against the accused.

The incident has prompted shock and anger on social media. In a tweet, former UP chief minister and BSP chief Mayawati said: “In Bulandshahr, a promising student – Ms. Sudiksha Bhati – who was travelling on a bike with her uncle lost her life due to misdeeds of bikers. This is highly tragic, shameful and condemnable. How will daughters progress? BSP demands the state should take swift action against the accused.”

The Bulandshahr Police have said they are investigating the case.

“The police team that went to the spot had questioned eyewitnesses who said a Royal Enfield Bullet was coming from the front and it suddenly stopped (near their bike) because of the traffic, which led to the accident. The body of the woman was sent for the postmortem,” Atul Shrivastava, a senior cop in Bulandshahr said. “At that time when the accident happened, the relative or any eyewitness had not spoken about any harassment,” the cop added.
