Along with Raina's cousin (named Saurabh Kumar), one other person identified as Shubham, a 19-year-old, also passed away.

The hit-and-run case emerged into the spotlight at the Gaggal police station, located near the Gaggal airport in Kangra. The police officials got straight into the business after receiving information about the absconding taxi driver and chased after him to arrest him from Mandi eventually.

The accident with the taxi saw the deaths of Saurabh Kumar resident of Gaggal, and Shubham resident of Banoi die on the spot. Saurabh's father named Mago Ram works in a factory and Shubham reportedly worked with him.
