8) As usual, Raju is listening to music and is walking towards a local park for morning walk. On his way, he witnesses a car hitting a person and speeding off. He could not notice car’s number or any of its features due to suddenness of the event. Since childhood he is scared of blood, and he is hesitant to even look at the victim who’s bleeding. Unfortunately, there are no people or vehicles around to help the victim. Even though he wants to help the victim badly, Raju gets scared and tries to walk away from the victim. In the past he had fainted at the sight of blood. However, he tries to call various numbers including police, ambulance and his friends. But no one picks his calls. Panicking, he decides to run away.
