Utsav Bhasin, who was arrested for reportedly injuring two men when he hit them with his car near the Moolchand flyover, turned 19 just three months ago.
An alumnus of Delhi Public School, Utsav is pursuing a management course from Institute of Integrated Learning and Management in Lodhi Colony. He was planning to go to Singapore later this month, to pursue a management course.
Police have said since he has been booked in an accident case, there is no restriction for him to travel abroad.
On Friday, he was released on a personal bond and surety of Rs 20,000 each. For any other enquiry, the relative who stood as a guarantor for Utsav would be held liable.
After the accident, Utsav reportedly went to his Punjabi Bagh home. After some time he left his home and went to a relative’s place. He was arrested on Friday morning from ISBT, Kashmere Gate when he was trying to flee the city.
Utsav’s father Surendra Kumar Bhasin is the owner of Golden Rolls, a company producing rubber rolls for the rice milling industry in Sonepat. The car had been registered in the company’s name.
Utsav’s father is in China and one of his uncles completed the formalities at the Lajpat Nagar police station.
Utsav’s mother died when he was eight years old. He lives with his father, a younger sister and grandfather.
During interrogation, Utsav told the police he was repentant and apologetic though he was not at fault.
