Sharma, the marketing head at a MNC, was crossing the road when the speeding car hit him. So great was the impact, that the tyre of the car burst later on and it came to a halt. The driver, the 17-year-old son of a Delhi businessman, fled the spot along with his seven friends. He was later arrested and released on bail. However, his father has been booked for allowing the minor to drive.
According to reports, eyewitnesses have claimed that the car jumped a signal and hit Sharma. The youngsters, with one of them not older than ten years, alighted from the car and tried to flee. Locals caught hold of them but they still managed to run away. However, the police managed to track the driver down and arrest him.
Initially, a man who claimed to be the driver of the car, approached the police saying he was at the wheel. However, he retracted his statement after Sharma died. He has been booked too.
