    Delhi Police time and again proved they are worthy less. They allowed capital to gain the rapists' capital of India so CBI inquiry is somewhat reliable. Strange thing in purported accident is no other got hurt and even Munde did not have external injuries to be fatal. He used to speak with guard and even ministers car not much damaged and sped away (TO WHERE?) as per report . So clearly it was a minor accident resulted in major fatality and totally contrary to death due to shock or brain hemorrhage after detracting from initial cardiac arrest. It all appear that was a premeditated clash. So the complicity of Indica car driver as well as persons present in the car must be probed thoroughly. If there was complicity then no question of speed of the car or who crossed red light arise. If not then Indica driver will be guilty only had he crossed the red light recklessly.
