Mumbai, July 8

The probe into the BMW hit-and-run case has found that victim Kaveri Nakhwa (45) was run over by accused Rajrishi Bidawat just before Bandra Worli Sea Link after being dragged there by main accused Mihir Shah as the two fled, an official said.

Father gets bail

Mihir’s father Rajesh Shah was remanded in 14-day judicial custody, but later granted bail by court. He has been booked for misinformation and destruction of evidence

Rs 18,000 bar bill

Mihir was partying with four friends in a Juhu bar, after which he and his driver proceeded towards south Mumbai, as per the probe. A bar bill of Rs 18,000 is being verified. Accident took place at 5.30 am

The official further said Mihir’s father and Palghar Shiv Sena leader Rajesh Shah took active part in ensuring his son’s escape and also had plans to tow away the offending vehicle.

Mihir was allegedly driving the BMW car, which fatally knocked down Kaveri and injured her husband Pradeep while the couple was on their two-wheeler in Mumbai’s Worli area Sunday morning, the police said. Bidawat was the other occupant in the car.

CCTV footage produced by the police in court showed Kaveri being dragged by the car for 1.5 km. Footage showed Mihir and Bidawat pulling the woman off the bonnet, placing her on the road and then mowing her down again while reversing the luxury vehicle. “They sped towards Kala Nagar where the vehicle’s engine stalled. Mihir then called his father. Rajesh arrived at the spot in a Mercedes, spoke to Mihir and asked him to escape. Later, Rajesh planned to tow the BMW from there,” he said.
