Kolkata Police is planning to file charge sheet by mid-March in the Red Road hit-and-run case. An Air Force official was killed by a speeding car during Republic Day parade rehearsal.

Quoting the Test Identification Parade (TIP) report, a highly-placed source in Kolkata Police told PTI that preparations are on to frame the chargesheet. At the identification parade, witnesses identified 24-year-old Sambia Sohrab as the person driving the Audi on 13 January.

The process has already been initiated and hopefully we will be able to produce the charge sheet by mid-March. Two constables identified Johnny and Sanu alias Shahnawaz Khan (as present) in the second car (Skoda), while 14 others, including Air Force officials and civilians, identified Sambia as the driver of the Audi that hit the Air Force officer and fled.

An on duty traffic constable at the Kidderpore Road identified Sambia as driving the Audi alone.

Two other constables also confirmed the traffic cop’s version that Sambia was alone in the vehicle while Sonu and Johnny were in the other.

In the TIP, the three accused were paraded with 27 others for the witnesses to identify at the Presidency Jail.

“With these witnesses identifying the accused, it will make things easier for us to frame the charge sheet. Now we will have to compile all the reports including this one (TIP report) apart from our investigations into the case. The process has already been initiated” the officer said.
