Mumbai: The right leg of a 23-year-old,
who was seriously injured after a car driven by the son of a
corporate honcho had hit his bike, has been amputated in order
to prevent infection spreading in his body, police said on Sunday.
"Alauddin Imamuddin Haq`s leg has been removed during
the operation at the Bombay hospital yesterday by the doctors
attending him following gangrene," S S More, sub inspector at
Marine Drive police station said.

son of Dinesh Shahra, managing director of Ruchi Soya, an
edible oil major, in a hit-and-run case.
Shahra, who was under the influence of alcohol at the
time of the accident, was apprehended near Churchgate after a
chase by police after his Porsche allegedly rammed into a
motorcycle driven by Haq at Marine Drive, police said, adding
that the accused was later released on bail.

The victim works as a delivery boy for a local
restaurant named Zaffran.
