    19-year-old woman allegedly responsible for Tuesday night's hit-and-run case in Chandigarh that left two people dead has surrendered.

    Sukhman Brar surrendered to the police on Wednesday evening and was arrested. She is the grand-daughter of retired Lt Col G.S. Brar in whose name the ill-fated Honda Accord car is registered.

    "Sukhman has been arrested and is being interrogated. A chargesheet will be filed against her," said Jagveer Singh, DSP, Chandigarh.

    A 21-year-old man and a five-year-old child travelling on a motorcycle were killed in the accident that occurred in a VIP stretch of Chandigarh. The Honda car hit the motorcycle while allegedly racing with a Maruti Swift.

    Singh told Headlines Today on the phone that Sukhman went absconding after her car hit the motorcyclist. "We raided several premises and built pressure on her (to surrender)," he said.

    Sukhman's arrest came 17 hours after the accident, inviting protests from the family of the victims.

    Singh said he was not in a position to tell if Sukhman was drunk at the time of the accident. A friend was accompanying her, he said.

    The car was travelling at high speed from Sukhna Lake towards Sector-3, where residences of chief ministers of Punjab and Haryana are located.

    After the accident, the occupants of the Honda car fled in the Swift, leaving their vehicle behind.

    The dead were identified as Sukhwinder Singh, 21, and Harpreet, 5. Eyewitnesses said Harpreet was thrown several metres up in the air under the impact of the collision and died on the spot. Sukhwinder died in hospital.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
