Mumbai hit-and-run case: Pradeep Liladhar Nakhwa, husband of Kaveri Nakhwa, who tragically lost her life in a hit-and-run accident in Mumbai on Sunday, broke down in tears while talking to the media on Tuesday. “There is no one for the poor,” Pradeep lamented, accusing the authorities of dereliction of duty as the prime accused, Mihir Shah, is the son of a politician.

The deceased was travelling with her husband on a scooter on Sunday morning when a BMW luxury car, allegedly driven by the son of a Shiv Sena camp leader (Eknath Shinde), hit them from behind, causing an accident.

Pradeep Nakhwa was injured in the incident.

“Mihir Shah has fled…nobody is doing anything”

In an interview with the media, he said that the accused Mihir had fled despite his repeated requests to stop. “She must have suffered a lot… nobody is doing anything,” he said, sitting next to his daughter Amrutha.

Pradeep had earlier said that his wife could have been saved if the accused had stopped the car.

His daughter Amrutha demanded that her mother be returned to her. “…I am restraining myself but I cannot help myself… She is everything to me. Will you bring back my mother?” she asked.

Mihir’s father, a politician, accused of hiding his son

The accused Mihir Shah, son of Palghar Sena leader Rajesh Shah, was absconding since the incident but was arrested, the official said. Mihir’s father has been accused of actively ensuring his son’s escape. Officials also said he knew about the accused’s whereabouts when he was absconding.

The incident, which took place alongside the ongoing investigation into the Porsche accident in Pune, has sparked widespread outrage as people questioned lack of accountability when the accused was a wealthy person.

The gruesome details of the accident come to light

The investigation into the incident has revealed gruesome details of the incident. According to the official, the victim was run over by the accused Rajrishi Bidawat after the main accused Mihir dragged her just before Bandra Worli Sea Link. Both of them then fled from the spot.

CCTV footage of the incident also emerged, showing the victim being dragged by a luxury car for almost a mile. Mihir and Bidawat can then be seen pulling her off the hood of the car and laying her on the road. She was then hit by the same car as the accused was reversing.

Police have formed 11 teams to nab 24-year-old Mihir, who is suspected to have been drunk at the time of the accident. Chief Minister Shinde assured decisive action.
