An unidentified man was mowed down by a Honda City car allegedly driven by a drunk driver in north Delhi on Sunday morning, the police said.

The incident was reported from the Kabutar Market area near Jama Masjid at 2:30 a.m," said a senior police officer.

According to police, the car first hit another four-wheeler, a Santro, after which it ran over a pavement, crushing some beggars sleeping there and killing one. "The car is registered in the name of a Nai Sarak resident. We have registered a case and investigations are on," the officer said. Eewitnesses claimed that the driver of the car appeared to be in an inebriated state," he said.
