Mumbai Police on Thursday (July 11) recreated the scene of the BMW hit-and-run case from CJ House in Worli to Sea Link with the main accused, Mihir Shah.

According to reports, Mihir admitted to driving the vehicle during the fatal crash that claimed the life of Kaveri Nakhwa (45), who was riding pillion on a scooter.

During interrogation, Mihir expressed remorse for his actions, saying that he deeply regrets the consequences of his reckless driving.

The incident unfolded early Sunday morning in Mumbai's Worli area, as Shah was returning from a party. Immediately following the crash, Shah abandoned his car and fled the scene in an auto-rickshaw.

He sought refuge at a friend's residence in Goregaon, then moved to his family's Borivali home before eventually hiding out at a resort in Shahapur, Thane district, with friends and relatives.

Authorities arrested Mihir  on Tuesday in Virar, Mumbai, after tracking him down when his friend briefly switched on his phone. Earlier revelations indicated that Mihir had been partying with friends at a Juhu bar, where they consumed a significant amount of alcohol.
