Noida: Days after an elderly man was killed in a hit-and-run in Noida’s Sector 24, police arrested two accused in connection with the case. The Audi car involved in the incident has been recovered. 

On Sunday morning, an Audi car had fatally knocked down Janak Dev Shah (63), a former employee at All India Radio. The accident was reported near Kanchanjunga Apartment in Noida Sector 53. After ramming into the deceased, the accused had fled from the spot. 


Earlier, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (ADCP) Noida, Manish Kumar Mishra, had said that the incident was reported by the victim's son, Pradeep. "A man named Pradeep from Sector 24 informed the police that his father was hit by a car and he died in the accident," news agency ANI quoted Mishra as saying. 

Accident Caught on CCTV

The entire incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed nearby. In the CCTV footage, it could be seen that the victim, who was trying to cross the road, was hit by the speeding car. The intensity of the crash was such that he flung into air and landed several metres away. As per the CCTV footage, Shah was crossing the road when suddenly the Audi came from the front and hit him. 

He went for a morning walk, when the incident took away his life. On the other hand, when Shah did not return home, his family members started looking for him, following which they found his body on the road. 


Subsequently, a case under relevant sections was registered at the police station and a search for the car owner was initiated. The incident occurred amid the ongoing investigation in the Porsche crash where two techies in Pune were killed after the speeding car driven by a drunk teen rammed them. 

Further investigation into the matter is underway.
