Absconding for 10 days after his father’s BMW rammed into a Tata Indigo near IFFCO Chowk here around noon and killed two persons, including a pregnant woman, Suraj Sehrawat, 19, the son of the luxury car owner, surrendered before a court on Tuesday and was granted bail.
Suraj, who according to his father Devender Sehrawat was in the back seat of the BMW when it crashed into the Indigo, has been booked for causing death due to negligence and rash and negligent driving.
DCP (East) Maheshwar Dayal said, “Suraj Sehrawat is an accused now since the witnesses have cited him as one.”
Suraj surfaced after the Gurgaon police issued lookout notices for him on Monday, suspecting that he could try to flee the country. They also filed an application in the court for a non-bailable warrant against him. The belated police action was prompted by a public outcry against the slow pace investigation that was highlighted on an almost-daily basis by HT.
Suraj is a student of Delhi University’s Atma Ram Sanatan Dharam College. Devender, who started his career with a cab, now owns a fleet of 1,000 cars and buses that ferry BPO and IT company employees in Gurgaon.
The pregnant woman who died in the accident was former IBM employee Kshama Chopra Sheyte, 30, who was returning home after a medical check-up with her husband and his parents. The driver-owner of the Indigo the family was travelling in, Sanjay Gulati, 45, also died in the crash.
