New Delhi: The post-mortem of a hotel manager, who died in a road rage incident in a posh market here, was conducted on Thursday by a medical board with police saying they will await for the report to take further action.

Rajiv Jolly Wilson (37), the manager of an Italian restaurant, was mowed down allegedly by a pilot Rajiv Aggarwal (37) after their car collided on Tuesday.

"The post mortem was conducted today. We hope to get the preliminary report in one or two days. Once we get it, we see whether to evoke harsher charges against Aggarwal," a senior police official said.

Police had slapped charges of causing death due to negligence and rash and negligent driving as investigators felt that the incident was "unintentional".

Aggarwal, the Jet Airways pilot, was released from police custody yesterday as the charges against him were bailable. The family of the victim has alleged that the police were under pressure not to invoke more stringent charges against the pilot, a claim which has been denied by the police.

Wilson lost his life on Tuesday when the pilot allegedly ran his car over him following an altercation after their vehicles collided. After the collision, Jolly came out of his car and allegedly entered into an argument with the pilot besides thrashing him.

"Aggarwal was inside his car. Suddenly he took a sharp turn. Jolly fell down and was run over," the official said.

The official said it appeared that Aggarwal did not do it intentionally. "The pilot was trying to enter the market when the collision took place. After that, he was thrashed allegedly by Jolly.

"As the pilot tried to drive away, Jolly fell down after his leg got caught in the rear wheel. There was little space between the car and footpath where Jolly was standing. His injuries were on the right side of his body. He apparently died due to the fall," the official said.

A forensic team also collected specimen from the spot yesterday.
