Worli Hit-And-Run: Accused Mihir Shah ‘Admits He Was Behind Wheel At The Time Of Accident’

Accused in the Mumbai hit-and-run case, Mihir Shah has admitted that he was behind the wheel when the accident took place on Sunday in which a woman was killed. The accused, who was arrested on Tuesday, confessed during an interrogation by the police that he was driving the BMW car at the time of the accident. 

Police are suspecting that the accused got his beard shaved after the incident to avoid being recognised. In the preliminary investigation, Shah has admitted to being in the driver’s seat. Based on the timeline gathered so far, the police have questioned Shah and confirmed all the details. He said that he got scared after the incident and left the scene before his father, Rajesh Shah, arrived.

The police will also look into the reason why the accused came to Virar alone, away from his family. He will be produced in court on Wednesday where the police will seek custody for further probe. 

On Wednesday, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Baladaheb Thackeray) leader Aadtiya Thackeray visited the residence of the victim, Kaveri Nakhwa and met with her husband, Pradeep Nakhwa.  

Earlier in the day, he slammed the Eknath Shinde government over the incident saying the Chief Minister should “stop the grandstanding” to divert attention from the case.

“It is clear, the accused, Mihir Rajesh Shah, must be caught and brought to justice,” he said in a post on X, adding, “All the grandstanding about his concern and directives to the police, is simply an eye wash.” 

He also questioned why the accused was not arrested within 48 hours with all the CCTV cameras and intelligence network in place. 

Shah, 24, was arrested by Mumbai police on Tuesday from Virar near Mumbai.
