In another hit-and-run case in Maharashtra, a 23-year-old man was killed after an unidentified vehicle knocked him down in Nagpur city, police said on Tuesday, reported news agency PTI.

A case has been registered against an unidentified person in the Nagpur hit-and-run case. An investigation is on into the Nagpur hit-and-run case, he said.

On February 25, a woman drove her Mercedes car recklessly allegedly under the influence of alcohol and crashed into two men travelling on a scooter on Ram Jhula bridge, reported PTI.

Both riders died after the crash.

The woman surrendered before police on July 1, more than four months after the crash, and was subsequently placed under arrest.

On July 2, a court here ordered her release, terming her arrest in the case unlawful.

On Sunday, a woman was killed in Mumbai's Worli area after a BMW car hit a two-wheeler on which she was travelling and dragged her for 1.5 km, police earlier said, reported PTI.
