A 70-year-old woman has been killed in an accident by a car owned by actor Arbaaz Khan but was being used by his brother and filmmaker Sohail.
The mishap happened around midnight on Sunday night near St Andrews Church in Bandra. The police have already confirmed that Khan’s driver Dhananjay Pimpale was behind the wheels and has been arrested. An alcohol test proved negative. He has been booked on charges of rash driving and culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
The deceased identified as Chandra Bala, was run over by the Lexus car with registration number MH 06 W 540. According to reports, the car ran over the woman’s body and did not stop. She was admitted to Bhabha Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Eyewitness reports say that Sohail was seen in the car – with some even suggesting he was driving – but the police have denied this.
Pimpale has been sentenced to nine days of imprisonment.
