“Mohammad Sazid was arrested on Monday evening after he was discharged from a hospital where he had gone for treatment following the accident,” said Ravinder Kumar, PRO of Gurugram Police.

Two of his friends were also inside the SUV at the time of the accident and suffered minor injuries. They were returning from Rishikesh and mistakenly entered the underpass from the wrong side of the 16-lane Golf Course road on Sunday morning, Kumar said.

The SUV speeding down the wrong lane of Golf Course road smashed into the cab inside the Sikanderpur underpass early Sunday morning, leaving the woman pilot Suvarna Sripalli Gayatri (30) critically injured and the driver and guard in the cab's front seats dead.

The victims were taken to Neel Kanth hospital where the driver, Vinod Yadav, and security guard Kishore Kumar died of multiple injuries during treatment, a senior police officer said.

However, IndiGo pilot Gayatri sitting in the rear seat is battling for life in Medanta hospital in the city, the officer said.
