Shoaib Kohli, the 24-year-old analyst who killed 32-year-old Uber cabbie, Nazrul Islam, in a car crash on January 22 has already gotten bail, that too just hours after being arrested.
Kohli, who is an analyst with a multinational company in Gurugram, killed Islam when he rammed his BMW car into his cab on January 22nd night.
The impact of the crash was so hard that despite hitting Islam’s WagonR car from behind, his car almost crushed the cab and reached the engine area.
According to Delhi Police’s estimate, Kohli was driving his BMW at least at a speed of 100 kph when he crashed into the cab.
Kohli, who had fled the spot soon after the accident, was later arrested from his home in Panchsheel Park and within hours was released on bail.
He reportedly told police that he had lost control of his car that night because of the speed.
Kohli had rammed into the Islam’s WagonR near Munirka flyover around 11.30pm on January 22 and even as the locals gathered to revive Islam and take him to the hospital, Kohli managed to flee in an auto-rickshaw, leaving behind his mangled car.
Islam had been driving in Delhi for past 6 years. He lived in a rented accommodation in Gurgaon with his family and was until recently a private driver for a businessman.
After working for another employer for few months, on January 21 Islam had started driving for Uber after being offered a job by Taimur Islam, who is the owner of the WagonR involved in the accident.
