The road behind Tihar Jail in West Delhi is quiet early in the morning on Monday. The early birds on the street include two morning walkers and two others who were presumably on their way to play tennis. This peace was suddenly shattered by a Silver Honda City that raced down the narrow streets mowing down 67-year-old Ashwini Anand.Early Monday morning around 6:30, 21-year-old Rishabh Rawat, driving under the influence of alcohol mowed down three people at three different spots as he was on his way home. Rawat, a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) student, was returning home after a hard night’s partying from a friend’s house in Hari Nagar – which is barely 2.3 kms or about 10 minutes at the time in the morning. Rawat’s father Anil, owns a hardware store in South Delhi’s South Extension area.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”Kameshwar Prasad, 40, and Ashwini Anand, 67, were killed in the accident while Santosh, 40, was critically injured and admitted to a hospital,” the official said. Anand and Santosh were residents of Janakpuri, whereas Prasad lived in Sagarpur.”The car was intercepted after a chase of around 400 meters. The errant driver tried to step out of the vehicle and flee. However, the policemen overpowered him. He was found driving under the influence of alcohol,” said Pushpendra Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Police (West). The driver has been arrested and a case of rash and negligent driving causing deaths and injuries has been registered, Kumar said.According to sources, the youth was so drunk, that he could barely stand and had to be supported by the police officials who nabbed him.According to the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footage accessed by dna, Anand was walking with his friend Mr. Mehta when a car came careening on the wrong side of the road. The car hit with such force that Anand was flung more than 20 metres away and falling behind a tree on the pavement behind him. His companion Mehta, just stood there in shock as two passers-by, on their way for tennis quickly sprung into action.According to reports, Rawat was driving under the influence of alcohol and hit Prasad first at a corner, then hit Anand a few metres away and finally Santosh.”My father-in-law would go for his morning walks everyday. He was on his way home when he was hit. The spot where the accident took place is barely 250 metres away from our house,” said Sunny Ahuja.Anand who had retired from his tyre business, is survived by his wife Mamta and two daughters. Anand’s funeral will take place tomorrow once his daughters’ Sakshi and Deepti – who live in New York, United States of America (USA), reach Delhi. “I was in town for some work when this incident took place,” said Ahuja, who is married to Anand’s daughter Deepti.The Delhi Police authorities have impounded the Silver Honda City, which has been mangled at the bonnet.
