Deceased Victim Samarth Sarika Karale |

A 19 year old boy who was to join his first job in Merchant Navy, next month, was killed in a road accident on Wednesday early morning by an unidentified speeding vehicle. Even as the family is still mourning the loss of  the only son of the family, police are unable to find any clues about the vehicle that could have killed him due to lack of cctv on the road.

The deceased boy Samarth Sarika Karale, a resident of Ulwe, also worked as a delivery boy for an app based grocery delivery company on part time basis to utilise the time till he joined Merchant Navy next month. On Tuesday, he had his weekly off and was at home when one of his friends from Turbhe visited him in the evening. The duo then left for Kamothe to meet another friend and Karale left home in his white Activa.

On Wednesday wee hours at around 2 am, he messaged his uncle that he has left from Kamothe and is on the way back home. Instead of Karale reaching back home, the information about his accident reached his mother Sarika Karale at around 4 am from Nerul police. After the call from Nerul police, the mother and his uncle reached DY Patil hospital immediately only to find that he had succumbed to his injuries.

“While coming from Kamothe, an unidentified vehicle rammed onto him near Uran phata at Sion-Panvel Highway. Since there are no cctv cameras on that patch, it is extremely challenging for us to identify the vehicle that was involved in the accident. We have already informed Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation and Public Works Department about installing the cameras at this patch but all we are told is that the work is under process,” senior police inspector Tanaji Bhagat said. The deceased boy used to stay with his single mother at Ulwe who worked in a private firm. The accused has been booked for causing death by negligence, rash driving and over speeding.
