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 on Sunday booked under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which deals with punishment of murder.

Apart from Section 302, Sohrab has been also booked under sections 120(b), 307, 212 and 427 of the IPC.

Sohrab was arrested last night by the Kolkata Police.

He 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.

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