Pradeep Nakhwa recounted the traumatic experience and said "We were driving slowly when a car came at extreme speed and hit us. My wife was dragged under the wheels for a distance. I tried to stop the car but couldn't. The driver fled the scene."

Pradeep Nakhwa alleged that Mihir Shah, the accused, was initially evading arrest due to his connections as the son of a political leader. He criticized the administration for the delay, suggesting that "politics" was at play and that Shah would not be arrested until the legislative session concluded.

The Worli Police informed the court that CCTV footage showed the accused dragging the deceased for 1.5 km. The footage also revealed that Mihir Shah called his father, who allegedly advised him to switch seats with another person to evade responsibility. Following this, Shah fled the scene.
