[Video/Read] Mercedes Hit-And-Run: Family Releases CCTV Footage As Evidence

Shocking accident
Two days after 32-year-old marketing consultant Sidharth Sharma was killed in a hit-and-run case by a minor driver in north Delhi, his family has released the shocking CCTV footage of his accident to prove that the driver was over-speeding. A Mercedes driven by a 17-year-old boy rammed on Sidharth Sharma on Monday night when he was crossing the road near Ludlow Castle School. The video footage clearly shows an over-speeding car that hit Sharma when he nears the footpath on the opposite side. The police detained the accused minor charging him with rash and negligent driving and death by negligence, besides, he did not have a driving license as well. But he was later released and sent to his parentís custody in accordance with juvenile laws. The father of the minor boy was fined.

A juvenile who will turn major in two days
The police do not have the authority to arrest accused owing to courtís discretion and this has to lead the deceasedís family heavily disappointed. The think that the father and son will walk away with lighter punishment. The eyewitnesses reported the police that they had seen a group of teenagers stepping out of the Mercedes after the accident. The police have informed that the car was speeding at 80 kmph at the time of the accident and because it was an accident and not a criminal conspiracy the father could not be booked. If we see the video, Sidharth checked twice both sides of the road and the speed at which Marcedes was being drived on a road in Delhi, he had very little chance to think. The road was not a highway and in reality especially in Delhi, we always have people crossing road. Today, it was Sidharth, tomorrow it can be anyone of us.

How rich try to escape the law
After the incident, the driver hired by the businessman had allegedly claimed that he was the one behind the wheels but later changed his statement when he got to know that Sharma was dead, a police source said to the quint.

Family is not giving up
Sidharthís friend held a candlelight march in his memory from his residence to the Chief Ministerís residence, demanding justice for his death. They also took to social media campaigning for his justice using hashtag #JusticeforSid.
