Police sources said that the groom along with baraatis approached the hotel and the driver drove the car while the groom was dancing with baraatis. “Our investigation found that the accused stepped on the accelerator instead of pressing the brake of the car which led to the mishap,” said Mahesh Bandgar, assistant police inspector of central police station.
