A 40-year-old man died in a hit-and-run case on Kalyan-Bad­la­pur road on Fri­day.

The po­lice are yet to as­cer­tain the man’s iden­tity and are look­ing for his fam­ily mem­bers.

On Fri­day around 5am, the man was cross­ing the road near DMC cor­ner, when a four-wheeler ve­hi­cle hit him and fled from the spot.

Nilesh Dhu­mal, in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cer, said, “The driver ran away from the spot in­stead of tak­ing the in­jured to hos­pi­tal. The place where ac­ci­dent took place is iso­lated and there are no stalls or shops.”

“There are no CCTV cam­eras in­stalled in the area which has made it dif­fi­cult for us to trace the ac­cused.”

The po­lice saw car tyre marks near the spot and hence con­cluded that he was hit by a four-wheeler ve­hi­cle.

The po­lice found a gen­eral class rail­way ticket from Kalyan to Hazrat Niza­mud­din rail­way sta­tion in Delhi from the man. The date of jour­ney was next week.

Dhu­mal said, “We cir­cu­lated his photo among the lo­cals but it seems that he is not from Ambernath or nearby ar­eas. We have sent the body to the civil hos­pi­tal.
