In another hit-and-run incident in Maharashtra resulted in the death of a 31-year-old woman in Nashik city, as reported by police on Wednesday. The incident occurred on Tuesday, and the perpetrator, who fled the scene, has been apprehended.

According to police, the 51-year-old car driver was intoxicated during the incident on Tuesday evening. The accused was subsequently presented in court.

DCP Kirankumar Chavan told ANI, “Yesterday evening, under the Gangapur PS area, a woman died after she was hit by a speeding car. Police have registered a case of culpable homicide. A 51-year-old man was driving the car under the influence of alcohol…the accused was taken into custody and produced before court. Further proceeds will begin now…”

Devchand Rambhau Tidme, residing in Dhruv Nagar and employed at a company in the Satpur MIDC area of Nashik, has been identified as the accused, according to an official from Gangapur police station.

The victim, 31-year-old Archana Kishore Shinde, was walking home from work when a speeding car struck her from behind on Bardan Phata-Shivaji Nagar Road. She sustained severe head injuries and was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Prior to the collision, two young men traveling in the opposite direction noticed the car approaching the woman and attempted to warn the driver. Despite their efforts, the driver did not slow down, resulting in the vehicle hitting Shinde. Subsequently, the driver fled the scene, as reported by the police. The incident was recorded by CCTV cameras positioned in the vicinity.

A bystander recorded the car’s number, enabling the police to later locate and arrest the accused at his residence. A medical examination confirmed that he was severely intoxicated at the time of the incident, leading to his loss of control over the vehicle and the resulting collision with the woman.

According to an official from the Gangapur police station, the man has been charged under sections 105 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 281 (rash driving) of the Indian Penal Code, and relevant provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act.
