Gurgaon BMW hit-and-run: Driver not a suspect

New Delhi: A Gurgaon court on Monday dropped the anticipatory bail of Rajesh, the man who surrendered in the BMW hit-and-run case in Gurgaon.

Gurgaon Police has not opposed the bail plea of Rajesh as the initial investigations show he was not driving the car and hence not a suspect.

Earlier, around 100 people held a candle march to protest the two deaths in the BMW crash on Sunday and demanded the arrest of the real culprit.

The protesters marched a distance of 1.5 km from Leisure Valley in Sector 29 to Galleria market, demanding the arrest of the culprit in the May 5 accident, in which two persons died and three were injured after the speeding BMW hit a Tata Indigo car near IFFCO Chowk.

Sanjay Sethi and a pregnant woman, Kshama Chopra Shetye died in the accident, while three persons were injured.

After the incident, the driver of the BMW ran away while another person in the car, Dakhsh Jaiswal, was admitted in the hospital.

The owner of the BMW, Devender Sehrawat has claimed that his driver, Rajesh alias Raju was driving the vehicle when the mishap occurred.

Rajesh surrendered in the local court and verified this version. Police, however, refused to buy this version.

Police is suspecting that Suraj Sehrawat, son of Devender Sehrawat, was on the driving seat, but they are yet to establish this.
