Harish Dagar, who was the Joint Secretary at Student Union, Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College died earlier this week after being in coma for three days. Member of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), Harish was a second year student of Hindi Honours at ARSD College and he gave his last exam on 5th December 2014.

The same night, after his exams ended, he was on his way to attend a marriage with four others. According to the sources, except Harish everyone in the car (including the driver) was drunk. The car’s bonnet collided with a truck after being hit by a speed-breaker as the car was speeding at 150-160 km/hr. The victim suffered internal head injuries and was rushed to Saroj Hospital in Pitampura. While other suffered minor injuries, doctors declared Harish to be in state of coma. After three days of unconsciousness, he succumbed to his injuries on 8th December.

Dishant Sherawat, Delhi State Executive of ABVP and Unit President, ARSD College says, “Harish was a very courageous and hardworking person. He was also member of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) and was a favorite to all teachers and students. His family wasn’t economically that stable and due to that he stayed upset. He used to travel 40 kms for college everyday and had to manage his post (as a joint secretary), his academics, farm work and cattle work at home. Harish aspired to become a government officer and relieve his father from the household pressures.”

Harish belonged to the village of Malikpur on Haryana border and stayed with his parents who were farmers and his younger brother, Manish Dagar. Manish says, “I am in Class 11 and very young. My brother left me and my parents too early. My mother is in the state of unconscious since then and my father is a heart patient. Our family is shattered.”

Appeal: ABVP and ARSD appeal to the readers to donate generously for the economically backward family of the victim. To donate contact Dishant Sherawat on +918010333336
