Man who ‘ran over’ cashier was driving BMW owned by client
Days after Ranjan Kumar, a cashier at a club in East of Kailash, was allegedly mowed down by a man driving a BMW vehicle, police Wednesday arrested 23-year-old Shubham Jain and recovered the damaged vehicle.
Police said Jain deals in spare parts of luxury cars and was allegedly on a “joy ride” with his brother and a friend when he hit Ranjan, who was walking on side of the road. Ranjan was flung into the air and left bleeding for half an hour on the footpath before a delivery executive spotted him and informed police.
Benita Mary Jaiker, DCP (South), said, “Ranjan had injuries on head and limbs; he was shifted to AIIMS where he was declared dead on arrival. At the spot, we found parts of a car’s bumper. There were no eyewitnesses. We scanned more than 200 CCTVs and found the route taken by the accused. We then found a BMW car involved in the accident.”
The probe found that the car was owned by a Mumbai-based businessman who gave it to a relative in Chandigarh. The car was then taken to a workshop for repair, which was run by the accused. He was arrested from his house in Uttam Nagar and the car was recovered from nearby.
