NEW DELHI: Mihir Shah, the main accused in the Mumbai hit-and-run case, has admitted to being behind the wheel when the incident occurred, according to reports.
The authorities have also demolished the “illegal portions” of the bar where Shah is believed to have consumed alcohol before the incident.
On Tuesday, the state excise department suspended the license of Vice-Global Tapas Bar, located on Juhu Tara Road, for serving hard liquor to Mihir Shah, who is not yet 25 years old.According to state regulations, only individuals aged 25 and above can consume or be served whisky, rum, vodka, or similar Indian-made foreign liquor (IMFL).
The incident occurred on Sunday morning in the Worli area of the city, where a speeding BMW driven by Mihir rammed a scooter, resulting in the death of a 45-year-old woman who was riding with her husband.
Mihir was apprehended from a hotel in Virar on Tuesday, nearly 60 hours after the incident. He and his mother and two sisters had been evading authorities since early Sunday morning, with their mobile phones switched off. However, the police managed to track down numbers that Mihir frequently called and noted the numbers of some friends he regularly contacted. Although their phones were also switched off, one of the numbers suddenly became active on Tuesday morning, leading to Mihir’s arrest.
