HYDERABAD: The three men involved in two different cases of drunk driving over the weekend, killing four people, were all booked under culpable homicide not amounting to murder by the Hyderabad and Cyberabad police.

In the first case, the Banjara Hills police, who arrested Bazar Rohit Goud, 29, a businessman from Uppal and Vedulla Sai Soman Reddy, 27, owner of a pharma company Arktek Labs, for running over two employees of a private hospital with their luxury car, a Porsche bearing the number TS 08 HR 3344, registered in the name of Goud.


Hyderabad city police commissioner Anjani Kumar said that during the intervening night of December 5 and 6, at about 1:37 am, a fatal road accident was reported at Road Number 2 of Banjara Hills. “Ayodhya Rai, 24, and Debendra Kumar Das, 29, were killed in the accident. At about 1:45 am, the patrolling staff of Jubilee Hills police station at Road Number 5 of Jubilee Hills noticed one black colour Porsche with damaged front portion driven in the wrong direction and parked in the cellar of Padmavathi Nilayam. Suspecting the damages, home guard Jithender took photographs and upon knowing about the accident, the patrolling party alerted night duty officer Harishwar Reddy who, in turn, contacted the Banjara Hills police, took the two men into custody and handed them over the same to them at 3:15 am,” explained the official.


Based on a complaint by Ram Pravesh, uncle of Ayodhya Rai, a complaint was booked against the two men and they were booked under section 304 (II) and 109 of the IPC and section 185 of the M.V. Act.

In the second case, accused Chittampally Sanjeeva, who was arrested for drunk driving and killing a couple by the Narsingi Police, was sent to jail for culpable homicide not amounting to murder on Wednesday.

The accident, reported on December 6 at Shankarpally-Hyderabad road, killed Durgam Raju and his wife Durgam Mounika, said the police, adding that Sanjeeva’s BAC reading was 148 mg/100 ml of blood, whereas legally permissible limit is 30 mg/100 ml of blood. A case was booked under section 304 (ii) of the IPC and section 185 and 119 r/w 177 of the MV Act and he was placed under arrest.


The Cyberabad traffic police appealed to the public to introspect on these and start behaving responsibly while driving any vehicle on public roads in view of road safety. “The citizens are urged not to encourage drunken driving at all for any reason whatsoever,” police said.
