4K Mercedes scanned in Delhi, several owners questioned
NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police has questioned many people, mostly the owners of Mercedes cars in connection with the Mercedes hit and run case which has killed one and injured another fruit seller in Dwarka District on Sunday night.
The details of 4,000 Mercedes cars have been sought from the Road Transport Authority. Sources in police said that they are looking for a white Mercedes after carefully examining the logo found from the spot. "We are working on the case and have questioned many regarding the incident. Right now, we have questioned many who are the owners of Mercedes, mostly from nearby areas," said DCP Dwarka Anto Alphonse.
A speeding Mercedes car crushed to death a 35-year-old fruit seller and mowed down another who is battling for his life in Delhi's Dwarka late on Sunday night.
The logo of Mercedes was found at the spot and hence, the police suspect that it was a Mercedes car. The fruit seller who died was identified as Sarvesh and the injured as Inder, 30. They were returning with their carts from a local weekly market when the accident happened at the Ganpati Chowk in Dwarka's Sector 9.
The police said that they received a call about the accident at 11.54 pm. They suspect that the impact of the accident was so severe that the logo of the car broke and fell on the accident spot.
The impact of the car was so severe that the injured Inder almost lost his leg after being hit by the car. Sarvesh, on the other hand, died of severe head injuries. Though he was rushed to the DDU hospital but was declared brought dead by the doctors.
The deceased Sarvesh and the injured Inder both were residents of Mainpuri in UP. Inder resided in Srinivaspuri in South East Delhi. "Inder has suffered multiple fractures in his pelvic bones and lower part of the body including legs. The doctors are keeping a constant eye on him. He has been operated on," said a senior Police officer.
It seems that the speeding car after hitting the carts of both the fruit-sellers was in high speed and did not stop after the accident. A case has been already been registered under section 279,
337 and 304 A.
