There are conflicting reports on whether the actor was present in the car at the time of the incident. The Land Cruiser belonging to the actor was driven by his driver, Dhananjay Pimpale.
Eye witness accounts suggest that the driver mowed down the woman and sped away while other reports suggest that the driver and the constable rushed the woman to the nearby Bhabha hospital.
