Mumbai: In yet another case of hit and run, a woman was killed and six people injured on Sunday night in Mumbai, after they were run over by a speeding car.

Three of those injured are in a critical condition and are admitted to a city hospital.

The driver, a 22 -year old was apparently drunk when the accident occurred.

He ran over the victims on a footpath, as they were returning from a function at the Bandra Kurla Complex.

“We were returning from a function and were walking on the pavement. A speeding car first hit two men and then my wife who was dragged along with the car for some distance. The drunk driver fled,” stated Laazer, the deceased woman’s husband.

The accused, a commerce student at a prestigious college in the city, ran away from the spot, but was soon nabbed by the police.

The victims were from the Goregaon area.

A case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder has been registered and investigations are on.
