The driver of the vehicle tried to escape, but some men from the public chased him and managed to intercept the vehicle a kilometre away from the accident site. Eye witnesses said he had first banged the car in a wall and then ran the car over the woman.

The accused has been identified as Narinder Singh, a resident of Talwara. The Garhdiwala police took him in custody and registered a case under sections 279 (rash driving) and 304 A (causing death by negligence). He was said to be in an inebriated condition, when the accident happened.
