Three days after district-level boxer Megha died in an alleged hit-and-run case here, the Chandigarh Police are probing the fault at the rider's end.

The 17-year-old Hoshiarpur girl had died on Monday after falling from a motorcycle being driven by her cousin Gaurav which was allegedly hit by Mahindra XUV500 on road dividing sectors 29 and 30.

Sources in the police said they had received inputs that the motorcycle had skidded on its own, contrary to the report that an XUV had hit it.

They said they were awaiting the CCTV footage of intersections leading to the road dividing the two sectors to ascertain exact details.

A senior police official said the cops were analysing the probability of motorcycle skidding on its own and had not drawn any conclusion so far.

Meanwhile, investigations are on to ascertain the exact time of the accident and the alleged delay in taking the injured to the hospital.

Megha's father Sohan Lal had on Wednesday alleged that she had died as the police had failed to take her to the hospital in time.

"She kept lying on the road in a pool of blood for about 30 minutes, but nobody came to my daughter's rescue," Lal had said.

Gaurav, a second-year engineering student, said despite his repeated pleas, the police waited for the ambulance and wasted crucial 15 minutes in the process, but the police refute the allegations.
