The police identified the girl as Riya and said that her sisters Ankita (18) and Anu (16), who were injured in the accident, are now out of danger.

Officials from the Sector 39 police station arrested Sanoj, the driver of the Swift Desire that hit the girls, from the spot after the car rammed into a column of bricks. The police are now on the lookout for another individual who was in the car at the time. While the police did not confirm if the driver was drunk at the time, they said that alcohol bottles were recovered from the car.
