Mumbai: A tragic incident took place in Mumbai's Worli on Sunday when a speeding BMW, allegedly driven by Mihir Shah, the son of a Shiv Sena leader, struck a two-wheeler, resulting in the death of a 45-year-old woman and injuring her husband. The victims, Kaveri and Pradeep Nakhwa, were returning home after purchasing fish from Sassoon Dock when their scooter was hit from behind.

The impact flung the couple into the air, landing them on the car's bonnet. While Pradeep managed to jump off, Kaveri was dragged for 100 meters and succumbed to her injuries on the way to the hospital. The suspect, 24-year-old Mihir Shah, was reportedly driving under the influence and has been on the run since the incident.

Who Is Mihir Shah?

Mihir Shah is the son of Rajesh Shah, a Shiv Sena leader in Maharashtra's Palghar district. Mihir, who dropped out of school after Class 10, had joined his father's construction business.

Following the crash, Mihir allegedly attempted to remove a Shiv Sena sticker from the car and took off its number plate to avoid any connection to his father. He then abandoned the car in Bandra Kalanagar and fled. Mihir reportedly called his father to inform him about the crash and then turned off his phone.
