NAVI MUMBAI: Two sons of a Mumbai Police assistant sub-inspector were killed in a road mishap on Vashi’s Palm Beach Road in a head-on collision between their bike and a Mercedes early on Monday.
As the Mercedes driver fled the spot, APMC police have registered an FIR against him for alleged rash and negligent driving causing death. “We will obtain the car owner’s address from the Panvel RTO office on Monday and arrest him,” said APMC police sub-inspector Pankaj Mahajan. “As the driver fled the spot, we cannot ascertain whether he was driving drunk, hence Section 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act for drunk driving has not been invoked against him.”
The incident took place around 1.30am near the APMC truck terminal, when siblings Akshay (29) and Sanket Gamare (24) were returning to their residence in Vashi village on their bike. According to two passersby who witnessed the accident, the police said, the Mercedes was taking a left turn at the junction to head towards Sanpada when it came in front of the bike and the two vehicles collided. “The impact of the crash was so severe that the bike flung 50m away and the two brothers sustained severe injuries. Both were rushed to NMMC Hospital, where they were declared brought dead on arrival,” said Mahajan.
