Actor and Filmmaker Arbaaz Khan’s car, Land Cruiser, crushed a 70-year-old pavement dweller to death last night in Mumbai. The car was being driven by actor Sohail Khan's driver, Dhananjaya Pimpale. None of the Khan Brothers were present in the car at that time.
The driver was immediately arrested. The police said to a daily that the driver had confessed that he lost control of the vehicle while negotiating a turn and hit the70 year old lady, who appeared in front of the car suddenly.
The police received a call at 11:30 PM, half an hour after the accident, from an eyewitness reporting the accident. The preliminary tests seem to indicate that the driver wasn’t drunk. But the police are currently testing the urine and blood samples.
Chandra Bala was rushed to the hospital by an eyewitness and a constable. But according to the eyewitness, the doctors refused to take the woman in and asked them to remove her from the hospital. Later she was declared dead.
Dhananjaya Pimpale has been arrested on various charges, including negligent driving and culpable homicide not amounting to murder. He will be produced in a local court today.
