A 28-year-old BPO employee was run over by a Toyota Fortuner car in Chirag Dilli,South Delhi,early on Thursday. Police chased the accused for over a kilometre before overtaking him,and forcing him to surrender.
Police said the accused,Umang Aggarwal,was speeding in low visibility conditions.
According to police,the incident occurred around 12.45 am in front of the Masjid Moth bus stop. Sujay Vats,a resident of Vasundhara Apartments in Ghaziabad,was returning home on a motorcycle after his night duty when the car,driven by Aggarwal,allegedly hit him from behind.
