A 47-year-old man was killed after his scooter was knocked down by a car belonging to Gujarat Congress MLA Shailesh Parmar in Ahmedabad city, police said on Tuesday.

While family members of deceased Praful Patel alleged that Parmar’s son was driving the car, the police and the MLA said the latter’s driver Devendra Bhavsar was behind the wheel.

The mishap took place in Memnagar area here on Monday night, a police official said, adding that Bhavsar was since absconding.

The car is registered in the name of Parmar, who represents Danilimda constituency in the city.

“I will help police in the investigation. It was our driver, Dharmesh Bhavsar, who was behind the wheel,” he added. PTI
