Justice is equal for all, no one will be spared, says CM Shinde

NAGPUR: The law is equal for all and its implementation will not be any different in the case of the accident involving a BMW car in Mumbai on Sunday in which a woman was killed, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said here.

Kaveri Nakhwa (45) died after the two-wheeler she was riding with her husband Pradip was hit by a BMW car on Annie Besant Main Road in Worli in the early hours of Sunday, a police official said. The driver of the car, Rajesh Shah, and another occupant have been arrested.

Asked whether the man involved in the Mumbai accident was the son of a Shiv Sena leader, the CM said, “The law is the same for everyone and the government sees every case in the same way. There will be no separate rule for this accident. Everything will be done according to law.”

“Police will not protect anyone. The accident in Mumbai is unfortunate. I have spoken to the police to take strict action,” he added.

The case comes less than two months after the Porsche accident on May 19 in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar area.

Two IT professionals from Madhya Pradesh were killed after the Porsche, allegedly driven by a drunk underage driver, rammed into their motorcycle.

The case made national headlines after the juvenile court granted the boy bail on lenient conditions. Pune police uncovered an attempt involving the accused’s parents and doctors at Sassoon Hospital to switch blood samples to invalidate breathalyzer tests and force the family driver to take the blame for the accident.
