A woman was arrested on Monday, a day after her BMW car rammed into a parked vehicle from behind, which in turn hit four pedestrians, critically injuring them, in South Delhi's Greater Kailash Enclave-II area, police said on Monday.
According to police, Mahak Kapoor (34) was accompanied by her husband and was not under the influence of alcohol during the accident.

They were staying in a hotel nearby and were taking a walk after having dinner on Sunday night when the car hit them, they said.
