Investigation into the Juhu drink-driving case has made little progress. The police were unable to get through the Royalty Club in Bandra, which was booked for serving alcohol to the six youngsters.

“I visited the club on Monday night and Tuesday morning, but was told that it was shut. The authorities will be summoned on Wednesday,” said N Khatar, assistant inspector, Santacruz police station.

The blood sample of the accused, Rahul Mishra, 23, has been sent to the Kalina forensic science laboratory to determine the alcohol level. The report will, however, take two weeks.

Also, the RTO inspection of the vehicle that will ascertain if the accident occurred due to human error or mechanical failure is yet to be conducted. “The RTO was closed over the weekend. The inspection was scheduled for Tuesday, but the officials did not arrive,” said Khatar.

The autorickshaw that Mishra hit is also yet to be inspected. The driver, Darogakumar Maurya, 35, was in the auto at the time of the accident. “He doesn’t own the auto and has to pay a rent for every eight hours,” said Ramdeo Prajapati, Maurya’s friend.

Meanwhile, the medical condition of Nimisha Mane, 19, and Priyanka Rai, 20, who survived the crash, has not improved.
