The driver of a speeding SUV that allegedly rammed into a cab on Golf Course road, killing two people and critically injuring an IndiGo woman pilot heading to the airport, has been arrested, police said today. Mohammad Sazid, who had escaped after the accident in an underpass on Sunday, was arrested last evening. Mohammad Sazid was arrested on Monday evening after he was discharged from a hospital where he had gone for treatment following the accident, said Ravinder Kumar, PRO of Gurgaon Police.
His two friends were also inside the SUV at the time of the accident and suffered minor injuries. They were returning from Rishikesh and mistakenly entered the underpass from wrong side of the 16-lane Golf Course road on Sunday morning, Ravinder Kumar said. The SUV speeding down a wrong lane of Golf Course road smashed into the cab inside Sikanderpur underpass early Sunday morning, leaving woman pilot Suvarna Sripalli Gayatri (30) critically injured and the driver and guard in the cab’s front seats dead.
The victims were taken to Neel Kanth hospital where the driver, Vinod Yadav, and security guard Kishore Kumar died of multiple injuries during treatment, a senior police officer said. However, IndiGo pilot Suvarna Sripalli Gayatri sitting in the rear seat is battling for life in Medanta hospital in the city, the officer said.
