A senior police officer said, "We will call Mika Singh for questioning as there are several eye witnesses who have confirmed that he was driving the vehicle.”

A passenger in the auto suffered serious injuries as the black Hummer, according to eye-witnesses, swerved dangerously while hitting the rickshaw.
