Teenage girl while returning from New Year party rams her car into three vehicles, one dead

Labdhi Shah, 19, a resident of Pathik Society in Naranpura, was returning home at 4.45 am after celebrating new year party with her friends when she lost control of the vehicle and rammed her car into three vehicles. She lost control of her car near Indraprasth Tower and first rammed her car into a nearby parked auto rickshaw and then a bike carrying two youth and then a car parked nearby. In order to regain control she sharply turned the car but unfortunately it again rammed into the divider of the road and the car turned upside down.

Of the two youths riding on bike, Gaurav Rajyaguru, 24, who was riding pillion on the bike, sustained multiple head and body injuries. He died while being taken to a nearby hospital. According to police investigators, Rajyaguru, a native of Bhavnagar, was studying hospital management in an institute near Patan and had come to Ahmedabad to celebrate the New Year with cousins and friends.

The car hit two youths on a bike who were crossing the road and then hit a car in which a youth was sitting. Ajay rushed to the spot when he found that Shah's car was badly damaged and she could not come out as both the doors had got jammed due to the impact. People on the spot broke the front windscreen and took her out. She could not stand or speak properly.

"Shah is the daughter of a businessman and we suspect that she was returning from a New Year bash. She sustained injuries from the broken glass and was rushed to a private hospital in Vadaj by her relatives. She appeared before us on Sunday but due to her frail medical condition, we have not been able to record her statement so far. We have, however, taken her blood samples and sent them for analysis to ascertain presence of alcohol," said Vastrapur police inspector M R Sharma.
