Police said the accident happened on 10 January and the accused was arrested the next day but later released on bail. The hit-and-run incident was captured on CCTV cameras.

"The accused student, Abhinav Sahni was behind the wheels. He was accompanied by his friends on the day of the accident," a senior police officer said.
