A 36-year-old lady died in an alleged hit-and-run accident in Maharashtra’s Nashik, two days after a woman was murdered in a Mumbai BMW crash. The driver of the car that struck the woman on Gangapur Road was nabbed by the Nashik Police on Tuesday evening. The woman, Archana Kishore Shinde, was thrown into the air roughly 15-20 metres after being hit from behind by a white hatchback, according to disturbing CCTV camera footage of the incident that appeared online.

It was revealed by the police that the 51-year-old driver, who was intoxicated at the time of the incident and fled the scene, was later captured. An official from Gangapur police station identified the culprit as Devchand Rambhau Tidme, a Dhruv Nagar resident who works at a company in the Satpur MIDC region. Police arrested the accused after tracing him down using CCTV footage and his vehicle’s registration number. He was brought before the court and later arrested by the police. In a news report by Hindustan Times, an official revealed that Archana Kishore Shinde was walking home from work about 6 p.m. when she was hit from behind by a speeding car on Bardan Phata-Shivaji Nagar Road, near Gangapur Road. She sustained a major brain injury and people on the location rushed her to a nearby hospital. She was transported to a neighbouring hospital, where doctors confirmed her death. 

The day before this incident occurred, a 45-year-old woman, Nidhi Ware was struck by a truck in Nashik while she was out shopping. These incidents happened not too long after the Sunday morning hit-and-run incident in Worli, where the son of a Shiv Sena leader led by Eknath Shinde is accused of mowing down a 45-year-old woman. The deceased, Kaveri Nakhwa, died when the BMW automobile, which was travelling at a high pace, hit the two-wheeler that she was travelling on. Her spouse made a near-fatal escape. The police arrested Sena leader Rajesh Shah’s son, Mihir Shah, on Tuesday. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), in a recent move, razed a part of the bar that served alcohol to the accused, Mihir Shah.
