Cracking a hit-and-run case within hours, city police on Monday nabbed a youth for allegedly killing a 19-year-old boy by ramming his SUV into an autorickshaw.
22-year-old Rajesh, son of a realtor, was driving the Audi sports utility vehicle, when it rammed the autorickshaw last night, killing Deepak on the spot and seriously injuring another occupant.
The youth was arrested this morning, additional commissioner of police (traffic) MA Saleem said.
The accused has been charged under IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and was in police custody, he said.
The injured, a colleague and neighbour of Rajesh, had been admitted to a private hospital.
According to police, under the impact of the collision, the autorickshaw was thrown up in the air and landed on the ground with a thud. The accused along with two of his friends, who were also in the SUV, fled the scene abandoning the vehicle.
The vehicle belonged to Rajesh's mother, police said.
The deceased was the sole breadwinner of his three-member family and was working in a pub in the city.
