According to police officials, “The driver of the Audi lost control of the vehicle and rammed into two individuals, Govind Sarkar, 45, and Ashok, both rickshaw pullers, who were sitting on a bench at the time of the accident.”The injured were immediately transported to Hindu Rao Hospital for medical examination. “Govind was later referred to LNJP Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries,” a police officer stated.

However, Govind Sarkar, a resident of Mukundpur, succumbed to his injuries during treatment at LNJP. Ashok’s condition remains under medical supervision.

The accused has been identified as Virendra Mehta, a 56-year-old lawyer residing in Mukherjee Nagar, Delhi.
