Mercedes Hit & Run Case: Boy Charged With Culpable Homicide

Delhi Teenager charged with culpable homicide after hit-and-run case. After five days of wait, the boy who killed a man dead with an overspeeding Mercedes in Delhi, has been charged with culpable homicide on Saturday considering his past record of rash driving.

The police, during their investigation, found that the accused teenager was found rash driving in the past too causing a road accident with another vehicle. He had been challaned thrice last year for overspeeding and wrong parking. Hence, after seeing his previous cases, he has been charged under culpable homicide not amounting to murder, section 304 of the IPC. These statements came from the DCP (North) Madhur Verma. Earlier the police had apprehended the juvenile when the accident took place, but later he was released on bail because he was below 18.

On Friday, the police arrested the juvenile’s father, an Old-Delhi businessman under Sections 109/304 (abetment to culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of IPC. According to the police, he had not taken a single step to prohibit his son from taking his vehicle. Thereby he had abetted the crime of the juvenile.

The incident took place on Monday when 32-year-old Sidharth Sharma was trying to cross a road and the speeding Mercedes hit him. CCTV footage revealed that during the collision Sidharth flung several feet into the air and landed 15 metres away from where he stood. In spite, of the clear CCTV footage the police didn’t any strict measure against the boy.

The investigation officer who of the case was changed after the victim Siddharth sister met Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma on Friday and urged him to take strict action against the perpetrators.


The Logical Indian welcomes the decision taken by the Delhi Police by putting charges against the juvenile. The job is indeed commendable as it came from the same department which earlier had not responded rightfully. This is an exemplary case where justice has been meted out in the right way.
