The final report of the blood samples of admaker Indrajit Nattoji, who arrested on alleged charges of culpable homicide, revealed ‘high alcohol content’ in his blood. The 45-year-old had rammed his car into a five-year-old and his grandfather, killing them both, earlier this month.

Senior police inspector Subhash Khanvilkar from Oshiwara police station confirmed this. “The alcohol content in his blood is high,” Khanvilkar told HT. The police received the from Directorate of Forensic Science Laboratory (DFSL) in Kalina on Thursday. Nattoji’s blood samples were taken hours after the incident, when he was placed under arrest.

On the night of April 3, Nattoji was driving his car that rammed into 62-year-old Bhiku Polekar and his grandson Sartak killing them both. The two were crossing the Link Road at Jogeshwari (West), when the accident took place. Sarthak’s mother Shilpa suffered minor internal injuries. The family was returning to their residence in Gorai after attending a birthday party.

Nattoji was then sent to judicial custody after being sent to police custody for two days by a magistrate court.

The Oshiwara police have recorded the statements of some eye witnesses and have collected evidence from the car and the spot.

Nattoji family had earlier denied the allegations of his being drunk during the accident. His advocate Rizwan Siddiquee had earlier said, “Let a fair trial take place and let us not prejudice the minds of public.”
