Gurgaon: A speeding SUV allegedly mowed down a couple at IMT Manesar on Sunday night, dragging the 40-year-old man under it for nearly 50 metres.
Sardeep and his wife, Sameena, were on a bike when the SUV allegedly being driven rashly knocked them down near their house in Kasan village of Sector 7. Sardeep died of his injuries during treatment, Sameena said in her police complaint. The SUV and its driver are yet to be traced.
“Moments after we left our house for Gurgaon around 9.45pm, a speeding Scorpio coming from the opposite direction crashed into our bike. I fell down but my husband Sardeep got stuck under the SUV that dragged him for more than 50 metres,” Sameena told the cops.
Local residents rushed the couple to a private hospital, where Sardeep succumbed to his injuries during treatment.
“I have sustained a fracture in my right hand. There were 3-4 people in the SUV that did not have a registration number. The SUV driver sped away immediately after the accident,” Sameena said.
Police said they got the information from the hospital doctors a little after midnight and immediately a team was sent to record the woman’s statement.
