An autorickshaw driver was one of the eyewitnesses and he states that the car hit the woman and then ran over her, but never stopped and ran away. This shook the neighborhood and soon a crowd of almost 150 people gathered at the spot.
A good samaritan eyewitness and a constable rushed the victim to the nearby Bhaba hospital. However, they were given a cold shoulder by the hospital authorities who turned a deaf ear to the plight of the victim. No doctor checked the victim and they were told to take the victim out of the hospital. All this tussle wasted precious half an hour and finally she was declared to be dead.
Arbaaz’s elder brother the Bollywood super star Salman Khan was also booked for rash driving in the year 2002. He ran over pavement dwellers in Bandra. One was killed in the incident and three were injured in the accident.
