Gurgaon BMW hit-and-run: Order on police plea reserved

A court here Wednesday reserved its decision on a police plea demanding test identification parade (TIP) of Suraj Sehrawat, the main accused in the BMW hit-and-run case in which two people, including a pregnant woman, were killed May 5.

Sehrawat, 21, was presented by his lawyers before Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Jasbir Singh, who put off his order on the police request.

Sehrawat was Tuesday granted bail by a district court on submitting a bond of Rs.50,000. He surrendered in the court of the  chief judicial magistrate Tuesday morning.

Defence counsel objected to the police's plea for TIP, saying Sehrawat's examinations were on.

The prosecution said that two cab drivers, who were witnesses to the accident, had seen the BMW driver run away from the spot, so Sehrawat's identificatyion parade was needed.

Police said Sehrawat was barred from appearing in his annual examinations by his college due to low attendance. He is a commerce student at Delhi's Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College.

A speeding BMW car bearing number plate HR 26 AV 0007 had rammed into a Tata Indigo car May 5 here, killing two people, including a pregnant woman, Kshama Chopra, and critically injuring four others - Rajender Chopra, 68, Meena Chopra, 65, Daksh Jaiswal, 20, and Sanjay Sethi, 35.

The accident took place near the IFFCO Chowk Metro station on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road.
