Man dies in hit and run at Ambernath
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.
