55-year-old Ibrahim Shaikh died after being hit by an unknown vehicle on the GM Link road in Govandi on Monday morning. He was a resident of Shivaji Nagar in Govandi and had been working as a security guard at a bridge under construction. Police Sub Inspector (PSI) Sunita Chavare from Deonar police station said Shaikh was trying to cross the road on his way to work around 9.00 am when the unidentified vehicle knocked him down. The errant driver did not stop his vehicle to help Shaikh and instead, sped away. Shaikh died on the spot.

According to police, the accident spot doesn't have any CCTV coverage and hence they are scanning through footage from nearby areas to identify the vehicle that hit Shaikh. To complicate matters further, no eyewitnesses were available to give their statements to police. Senior Police Inspector Dattatray Shinde from Deonar police station said, “We have registered a case against the unknown accused driver under Sections 304 (A) (Causing death by negligence) and 279 (Rash driving or riding on a public way) of the Indian Penal Code, along with 134 (A) (B) (Duty of driver in case of accident and injury to a person) and184 (Driving dangerously) of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. We have formed a team to search for and nab the accused. Investigations are in progress”.
