A high-profile hit-and-run case has rocked Mumbai as the deputy leader of Shiv Sena, Mihir Shah, is the center of a police hunt following a fatal accident involving a BMW car in the city. The incident, which claimed the life of Kaveri Nakhwa, a resident of Worli Koliwada, unfolded on Dr Annie Besant Road during the early hours of Sunday.

Mihir Shah, son of prominent Shiv Sena figure Rajesh Shah from Palghar district in Maharashtra, is currently on the run after the BMW he was driving allegedly collided with Nakhwa and her husband Pradeep while they were on a two-wheeler. The harrowing event on Sunday morning left 45-year-old Nakhwa dead, with reports suggesting she was dragged for over two kilometers by the speeding luxury vehicle.

The unfolding of events saw Mihir Shah fleeing the scene near Bandra-Worli Sea Link, abandoning both the crumpled BMW and his driver, Rajrishi Bidawat, in the vicinity of Kala Nagar in Bandra. Both Rajesh Shah and Bidawat were apprehended by law enforcement authorities soon after the tragic incident transpired.

Authorities have raised the alarm by issuing a Look Out Circular (LOC) against Mihir Shah, fearing the possibility of the accused fleeing the country. The Mumbai Police have mobilized six investigative teams to track down Mihir Shah and bring him to justice.

Police believe that Mihir Shah, who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident, was captured on CCTV footage at a Juhu bar. The investigation also revealed that the luxury car involved in the hit-and-run was registered under Rajesh Shah’s name, further complicating the case.

Reacting to the case, Maharashtra’s Chief Minister, Eknath Shinde, assured that the law would be upheld impartially, stating that there would be no special treatment for the accused owing to his political connections. Shiv Sena MLA Aaditya Thackeray urged swift action in apprehending Mihir Shah and emphasized the need for legal adherence in the matter.

The accused individuals, including Mihir Shah, have been booked under various sections of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS), with both Rajesh Shah and Bidawat scheduled to appear before a local court for further legal proceedings.
