On Sunday, a heart-rending incident in Delhi gave a surprise to everyone. A car, driving by a Fashion Designing student, near Baba Khadk Singh road near Connaught Place crushed a 50-year-old woman. The body of the woman was reportedly dragged for almost 300 meters. Police barricaded somehow stopped the accused’s car. The car was running by a 20-years-old girl, who was reported as Shreya Agarwal, who was with her friends. This young girl belongs to Bareilly and she is a fashion designing student. It is reported that Shreya was driving on the wrong side and tried to escape after hitting the old woman. The whole event is about 8 p.m. in Sunday evening. When the woman named Fulvati was crossing the road near PVR Rivoli, then a high speeding car coming from the Hanuman temple strongly hit the woman. After the collision, the girl stopped the car for some time and then continued to the Shaheed Bhagat Singh Marg.
“We placed the barricade in front of the car when we heard people chasing it and screaming, “Gaadi Roko- Gaadi Roko” (Stop the Car),” Constable Rajesh who performs duty in that area, said. When people told us that a woman was stuck under the car, we released her, she was breathing at that time and was taken to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital,” said the policeman.
Shreya Agarwal was accompanied by her friends Baby, Rani and Megha. She was pursuing a course in fashion designing from Mumbai. She insisted on driving and the regular driver gave in. When the car was forced to a stop, the driver tried to flee. DCP (New Delhi) Madhur Verma said Agarwal was booked for causing death due to negligence and dangerous driving and her car impounded. The body of Phulwati was handed over to her family after autopsy.
The speed of the car was very high. According to reports, an eyewitness (without revealing his name) saw this whole incident. According to him, he chased the car with his bike. At the same time, he also tried to stop the car. He also tried to tell the Shreya that the woman was trapped in the back wheel of her car. Despite this, the young woman did not stop the car and kept on running fast. Then the police squad saw them and stopped her car. The 20-year-old Shreya Agarwal was later released on bail. Her vehicle UP25 CD-0220 A Black SUV, owned by her father, has been seized by the police.
