Aeronautical engineer Sansriti Sinha, 26, who was found dead on the tarmac at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) about 10 days ago, was first hit by a vehicle, tossed in the air and then run over by it after she fell, forensic reports have revealed.

The police believe the miscreant must have been in a highly inebriated state.

The police said the vehicle was being driven at a very high speed and the driver did not stop even after hitting Sansriti. Instead, it moved on, crushing her head under the wheels.

The police have come to this conclusion after conducting forensic tests on more than 30 vehicles plying within the airport.

Sansriti was working for Deccan Airlines. According to the First Information Report (FIR) lodged at the IGI airport, Sansriti’s manager Kavita Yadav informed the police about her death on October 22.

No one had seen Sansriti’s body lying on the tarmac until a pilot of Spicejet Airlines saw her body just before he was taking off and informed Air Traffic Control (ATC). ATC officials informed the airport authorities and they soon found out that the woman lying dead on the tarmac was an employee of Deccan Airlines.

“When the airlines officials saw Sansriti in a pool of blood, a doctor was called immediately. Dr R.K. Chawla, who attended to her, declared her dead,” said a senior police officer.

The police said they have specific clues into the case and are very close to solving the case.

The police said no eyewitness has come forward and that when they reached the spot, the blood stains had been wiped off.

A case of rash and negligent driving, death due to negligence and destruction of evidence has been registered at the Palam airport police station.
