NEW DELHI: A new twist has come to the fore in Delhi’s Kanjhawala case. A girl claiming to be an eyewitness to the accident came forward and claimed that she was sitting on the scooty along with the victim when the car hit the scooty.
Victim Anjali was with her friend Nidhi on the scooty while both were returning home before the two-wheeler collided head-on with a Maruti Baleno car. Due to the impact, Nidhi was tossed off the pillion seat while Anjali got stuck beneath the car and dragged for several kilometres which eventually resulted in her painful death.
According to the news agency ANI, the girl has said that, “She (deceased woman) was in drunken state but insisted on driving two-wheeler. After car hit us, I fell to one side while my friend got stuck under the car. Men in car knew she was stuck under their car. I didn’t inform police, went home:Nidhi eyewitness & deceased woman’s friend”

She said, “When the vehicle hit, I fell on one side. My friend was trapped under the vehicle. The people in the vehicle knew that a girl was trapped under. I did not tell the police after the accident.”
Earlier, the police had given information in a press conference that a girl was present with the victim, she ‘did not get hurt’.
During the press conference, the Delhi Police have informed that the girl who died after being dragged by the car was not alone when the accident took place.
Special CP Hooda said, “She (the other girl) was with him when the incident took place. She was not hurt. She had left.”
On Tuesday, the police also released the provisional post mortem report of the victim. In the report released by Delhi Police’s Special CP (Law and Order) Sagar Preet Hooda, the cause of death has been given as ‘shock and haemorrhage’.
According to the doctors, the cause of ‘shock and haemorrhage’ is the injury to the head, spinal cord, left thigh bone and the lower bones of both legs before death. According to the post-mortem report, there is no such injury on the victim’s body, which suggests that ‘sexual assault’ had taken place.
