Gurgaon: The driver of a speeding SUV that allegedly rammed into a cab on Golf Course road, killing two people and critically injuring an IndiGo woman pilot heading to the airport, has been arrested, police said on May 8.

Mohammad Sazid, who had escaped after the accident in an underpass on Sunday, was arrested on May 7. “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 Gurgaon Police.

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