Kolkata Police on Thursday issued a look-out notice against Ambia Sohrab, Sambia Sohrab and their father former RJD MLA Mohammed Sohrab, who are absconding after a speeding car reportedly owned by them killed an Air Force official during a Republic Day parade rehearsal here.
The look out notice was issued after the trio were found “absconding” from their residence at Jorasanko area in the city, a senior police officer said.
“Because they are absconding since yesterday’s mishap and we could not find them till today afternoon, this look out notice has been issued,” the officer said.
Kolkata Police sleuths have meanwhile seized Ambia’s passport during a raid at one of the Sohrabs’ residences, the officer said.
The police have so far raided five houses belonging to the Sohrabs and one of their hotels on Kyd Street in search of the trio.
Sources in Kolkata Police told PTI that reports from the South Police Division as well as from the traffic department on the incident were submitted to Kolkata Police commissioner Surajit Kar Purkayastha during the day.
“Yesterday the CP had asked for a detailed report. DC South and DC Traffic prepared report on the Red Road mishap and submitted it this afternoon,” the source said.
A 22-member team was set up by the CP to speed up investigation into the mishap in which 21-year-old corporal Abhimanyu Gaud was hit and killed by a brand new Audi after breaking three guard rails and barging into the parade rehearsal.
The car dragged Gaud more than 20 metres after hitting him and he died because of blood loss.
Meanwhile, the forensic report of the car suggested it was travelling at a speed of around 90-110 km per hour when it barged through the guard rails and hit the Air Force official.
During investigation, it was found that the Audi was yet to get the registration number and was delivered to the Sohrabs with a Trade Certificate (TC) number.
“As per showroom records, the car has been registered against a company which belongs to Mohammed Sohrab. The records also show that the car purchased for Rs 90 lakh belonged to Sohrab’s son Ambia Sohrab,” a Kolkata police officer had said on Wednesday.
