Mihir Shah, the accused in the Mumbai BMW hit-and-run case, has been sent to police custody until July 16. Mihir Shah was arrested on Tuesday, July 9, three days after the fatal hit-and-run incident which killed 45-year-old Kaveri Nakhwa.
During the hearing, the Investigating Officer (IO) presented the case details, explaining that Shah fled the scene of the accident along with the driver, Rajrishi Bidawat. The IO highlighted the necessity of investigating who Shah contacted after fleeing and who may have assisted him. The officer also noted that Shah had altered his appearance by cutting his hair and shaving to avoid identification, which required further inquiry. The IO stressed the importance of interrogating both Shah and Bidawat together for a thorough investigation.
The defense lawyer challenged the prosecution's arguments, questioning the need for continued custody. The lawyer pointed out that the car had already been recovered and disputed the necessity of retrieving the name plate, citing inconsistencies in the investigation. "They have the CCTV footage from the front side, where the plate should have fallen. Why can't they find it?" the defense queried.
Highlighting multiple defects in the remand application, the defense argued that no substantial grounds for Shah's arrest were mentioned. The lawyer asserted, "Everything about his ride from Borivali to the accident is known to them," and questioned the justification for extending custody based solely on the severity of the crime.
Mihir Shah arrested
Mihir Shah was arrested Tuesday, July 9, three days after the accident. His mother and sister were also taken into custody for allegedly helping him hide in a flat in Virar. Shah is the son of Shiv Sena leader Rajesh Shah, who was also in the car during the accident. Police are investigating if Rajesh was involved in hiding his son.
The probe revealed that Mihir Shah was driving the car when it hit a scooter, leading to the death of 45-year-old Kaveri Nakhwa. According to the police, the victim was dragged for a kilometer before Mihir and Bidawat removed her from the bonnet, placed her on the road, and then ran over her again while reversing.
The police presented CCTV footage in court showing the sequence of events. The footage captured Kaveri Nakhwa being dragged by the car and then being run over again by Bidawat. The police told the court that Mihir Shah and Bidawat fled the scene after the incident.
Amruta Nakhwa, the victim's daughter, has demanded capital punishment for the accused, stating, "My mother should get justice. I want him (Mihir Shah) to get the death penalty. She (victim) was in a lot of pain, I saw her with my own eyes, in the hospital."
The police custody of Shiv Sena leader's driver, Rajrishi Bidawat, has been extended until July 11 by a Mumbai court.
