Sidharth Sharma (32) lost his life after being hit by a speeding Mercedes, which was being driven by a Std XII student. CCTV footage of the incident shows the teenager speeding in his vehicle.
According to the visuals available, Sidharth was carefully crossing the road when he realised that a car was speeding towards him. He tried to get out of its way by rushing towards the pavement but was hit within seconds.
According to the police, the Mercedes had been running at a speed of 100 KM an hour. The car didn't slow down, as shown in the CCTV visuals and flung Sidharth into the air.
The 17-year-old teenager abandoned his car and fled along with friends as the front tyres of the car burst, forcing it to stop at a pavement.
The accused was arrested but is currently out on bail. The police has also charged the minor's father for letting the teenager drive a car.
The victim's family is in shock and has demanded stern action.
