MUMBAI: Worli police, probing the BMW hit-and-run case, said the prime accused, Mihir Shah (24), had bought four 500ml cans of strong beer from a bar in Malad while heading from Borivli to Marine Drive early on Sunday. Police claimed that Mihir consumed beer in the car, hours before his BMW rammed into a scooter at Worli, killing Kaveri Nakhwa (45), and injuring her husband, Pradip (50).
Police had on Sunday arrested Mihir’s father Rajesh Shah, a former Shiv Sena functionary, and the family driver, Rishiraj Bidawat (30), who was in the car at the time of the accident. Mihir was arrested on Tuesday from a hotel in Virar.
On Wednesday night, police took Mihir and Bidawat to the crime scene to find out the exact details of the incident and videographed the procedure. Police said as Mihir had also changed his appearance by shaving his beard and cutting his hair at a salon before he went into hiding, they will take him there too for investigation.
Blood samples of Mihir and Bidawat have been sent to the forensic science laboratory for analysis. Both have admitted to their crimes, claimed police. Mihir told police that he fled after the mishap as he was scared.
On Thursday, Bidawat was sent to judicial custody by a metropolitan magistrate’s court in Sewri. He told police that he has been employed with the Shahs for the last 10-12 years, and he would often drive Mihir around.
