No arrest in Kolkata hit-and-run case

No arrest in Kolkata  hit-and-run case

Despite assurances of stringent action from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the death of Indian Air Force officer, Corporal Abhimanyu Gaud, who was killed by a speeding Audi SUV on Wednesday, the probe seems to be going the way of other high-profile cases of road rage.

 Not only has the Kolkata Police failed to trace the possible perpetrator, senior officers also seem incongruous over their versions of the incident.

Senior military officers, who expressed dismay at the way things are moving , pointed out that with technological developments, it is hardly a task for the city police to trace a person and track one’s location.

The police, however, say that Ambia, 26-year-old son of former RJD MLA Mohammad Sohrab, who could have been driving the car, could not be tracked after 10 am on Wednesday. Till late Thursday evening, the police could not trace either Sohrab or Ambia.

While investigators claim they have reasons to believe that even though the car was registered in Ambia’s name, his younger brother, Sambia, might have been behind the wheel when it mowed down Corporal Gaud on Red Road.

Senior officials claimed they are facing difficulties in tracking down any of them as their cell phones were switched off.
