The horrific accident took place Sunday night when the 20-year-old woman riding her scooter was struck by a car and her body was dragged around four kilometres in Sultanpuri, outer Delhi.

Media reports quoted an eyewitness, apparently a delivery boy who was present at the crime spot, saying as “the car driver took a U-turn towards Rohini as a police station was 100 m away. While taking the turn, the car made a loud voice and then I took notice and saw the head of the girl hanging. The car was at a distance from me, I don't know if she was screaming or not. I saw it live and no music was being played in the car. The car was at a speed of 40 to 60 km/hr. I don't know if the driver was drunk but this is what I saw."
