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," SS More, sub inspector at
Marine Drive police station said.

Last Sunday, police had arrested Ankush Shahra (24),
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.
