The Gurgaon police on Friday collected blood samples of Delhi University student Suraj Sehrawat, the main accused in the BMW hit-and-run case.

As directed by the court on Thursday, the 19-year-old accused reported to the Gurgaon civil hospital’s chief medical officer (CMO) around 4pm on Friday.

He was accompanied by his father, Devender Sehrawat, who owns the BMW car that rammed a Tata Indigo car near Iffco Chowk, killing two people, including a pregnant woman, and injuring four others on May 5.

A police team led by ACP Bhupinder Singh, who heads the special investigation team (SIT) constituted to probe the case, was present when Suraj’s blood samples were taken.

“We collected two blood samples of the accused and handed it over to the police,” CMO Dr Praveen Garg said.

The samples will be sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory at Madhuban near Karnal where it will be matched with blood samples collected from the air bags and seat covers of the BMW car, allegedly being driven by Suraj.

The court of Gurgaon chief judicial magistrate Jasbir Singh had on Thursday also allowed the police to collect Suraj’s driving licence.

The police on Friday issued a notice to Suraj directing him to surrender his licence within 10 days.

In case his licence is found to be invalid, cases will be slapped against him under the Motor Vehicles Act.
