Ahmedabad: The owner of a BMW, which caused a fatal hit-and-run in Ahmedabad has been arrested. The black BMW was registered in the name of Vismay Shah, whose father Amit Shah is a local eye surgeon.
"We have arrested Vismay Shah, on whose name the BMW car was registered. Shah is the son of a local eye surgeon here. We are questioning him and will seek his remand for further custodial interrogation," Joint Commissioner of Police (Sector-1) Ajay Tomar said.
While one of the bikers, Shivam Dave, an engineering student, was killed on the spot, his friend Rahul Patel succumbed to his injuries in a private hospital this morning, police said.
The BMW, which was being driven at a breakneck speed, had rammed into two persons on a motorcycle, flinging them off the two-wheeler last night in the Judges Bungalow area, police said.
The driver of the four-wheeler immediately escaped from the spot.
The car had screeched to a halt after dragging the bike for about 35 metres before ramming into a tree, police said, adding that Shah, who was driving the car, came out of it, apologised and got into a car driven by a girl and fled from the spot, they said.
