Mumbai: The Mumbai Police on Friday arrested the driver of a Mercedes car which ran over five people sleeping on a pavement.

The white car with Jharkhand number plate ran over four women and a child at around 12:15 am at Mohammed Ali road.

Four of the victims were identified as Munira Shaikh, 25, Rajul Moinuddin Shaikh, 4, Alisha Shaikh, 40, and Rashida Shaikh, 20.

They were admitted to Sir JJ Hospital with multiple fractures and other injuries, police said.
