Lamborghini Urus Crashes Into Auto, Critically Injures Two: Update
The suspect, identified as Rajbir Sardana, is a student studying at a foreign university who was visiting Delhi on vacation. Himanshu Batra, one of Sardana’s friends, is currently being questioned by the police. Three other occupants who were in the Lamborghini at the time of the incident have also been issued notices by the authorities. It is yet to be determined whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol, and his blood sample has been collected for examination.
Preliminary investigation reveals that Sardana and his four friends were returning home to Panchsheel after attending a party in Nehru Place. The Lamborghini, allegedly traveling at a high speed, collided with a divider, causing damage to its front portion before colliding with the autorickshaw. A traffic policeman who witnessed the incident immediately contacted the police control room.
The police have registered a case of rash and negligent driving, as well as causing grievous injuries. The Lamborghini has been seized and examined by forensic officials. The accident occurred around 7 am, and upon receiving a PCR call regarding the collision, a police team was dispatched to the scene where they found the damaged Lamborghini and auto. Both injured parties had already been rushed to Max Hospital in Saket.
DCP (south) Chandan Chaudhary stated, “The investigating officer has received the medical-legal case (MLC) reports of the injured persons. The statement of the victims will be recorded separately, and necessary legal action will be initiated promptly.” CCTV footage from the accident site is currently under examination to gather further evidence.
Prince Gautam’s elder brother, Harsh, revealed that Prince sustained head injuries in the accident. He mentioned that his brother usually commuted to work on a bike but opted for the autorickshaw due to the rain. Harsh expressed concern over Prince’s deteriorating condition and confirmed that he is now receiving medical treatment. The Gautam brothers had relocated to Delhi from Madhya Pradesh four years ago, and Prince had recently received a promotion at his job.
As the investigation continues, the police aim to gather substantial evidence, record the victims’ statements, and file a chargesheet promptly. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of road safety and responsible driving, especially when operating high-performance vehicles.
