A week after a speeding BMW crashed into a Tata Indigo here, killing two persons, including a pregnant woman, the Gurgaon Police have done little to bring the culprits to book.
No arrest has been made as the police claim they are unable to trace the driver of the BMW.
Strangely, no statement has been taken from a key eyewitness — a youth who was in the BMW and was injured in the accident. The youth, Daksh Jaiswal, 21, is a friend of Suraj Sehrawat, the son of the BMW’s owner, Devender Sehrawat.
Daksh is recuperating at Max Hospital, Gurgaon and was shifted to the general ward from the ICU on Friday.
“We haven’t recorded Daksh’s statement as he is still to be declared fit by doctors,” said DCP (crime) Maheshwar Dayal.
Doctors at Max refused to comment on Daksh’s condition, claiming his family has not allowed them to do so.
But sources said he has been talking to relatives and friends who have visited him. Daksh’s father, who refused to disclose his first name, said his son “will give a statement to the police once he is out of the mental trauma”.
Devender Sehrawat, 42, has told the police that his driver, Rajesh Kumar, was driving the car and his son was in the back seat when the accident took place on Saturday (May 5).
Devender owns a fleet of 1,000 cars and buses that ferry BPO and IT employees in Gurgaon.
