Kolkata hit-and-run case: Prime accused arrested, to be produced in court today

Kolkata, Jan. 17 (ANI): Sambia Sohrab, the prime accused in the hit-and-run death of an Indian Air Force corporal during Republic Day rehearsals on Red Road, was arrested last night by the Kolkata Police.

Sambia is Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mohammad Sohrab’s son and last Wednesday, he allegedly ran over IAF corporal Abhimanyu Gaud amidst the Republic Day parade rehearsal in Kolkata.

He was arrested around 11.10 pm while he was heading towards his in-laws’ house. Following questioning, he is likely to be produced before the court here on Sunday as he faces charges of murder and criminal conspiracy.

Last Wednesday, during a drill in the run-up to the Republic Day, an Audi charged into the cordoned-off area and when the corporal tried to stop the vehicle near the south gate of the Fort William, he was fatally run over by the speeding car.

Gaud was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead. (ANI)
