Sambhajinagar woman dies as car falls into valley

Police registered a case on Tuesday against a man after his female friend was killed when the car she was driving fell into a valley in Maharashtra`s Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar district, an official told PTI. 

According to the agency reports, the man had been charged under Indian Penal Code Section 304(A)  for causing death by negligence as he handed over the car keys to the woman without knowing whether she had a driving license or not, the official said.

Reportedly, the incident took place before they registered a police case.

The deceased, identified as Shweta Survase (23), reportedly died on Monday afternoon after she accidentally pressed the accelerator while her car was in reverse gear. Her friend Suraj Mule was shooting her video, a police official told PTI.

According to the reports, the vehicle slid back, broke a crash barrier, and plunged into the valley in the Sulibhanjan area. It took an hour for rescuers to reach her and the vehicle. Reportedly, she was carried to a neighboring hospital and declared dead.

A case was registered on Tuesday against Mule for allegedly causing the death by negligence, an official from the Khultabad police station told PTI.

He said, “We will be issuing a notice to the accused as per legal guidelines.”
