Mumbai, Jan 7: The city police detained former cricketer Saba Karim's son for knocking down a woman pedestrian near Kemp's Corner junction in south Mumbai on Tuesday.
The incident occurred this morning at around 1830 hours, when Mr Karim and his son Fidel, in his mid-20s, were proceeding in a car from Kemp's Corner towards south Mumbai, police said.
As Fidel tried to overtake another vehicle in the third lane of the road, the female pedestrian, who was crossing the road, suddenly came in front of his vehicle.
Before he could apply the brakes, she was knocked down by his car and was badly injured, said the sources. The woman, identified later as Siddhi M, was rushed to the nearby Jaslok Hospital in an unconscious state and is being treated there. Police are waiting for her to regain consciousness and record her statement before initiating further proceedings against Fidel, sources added. (UNI)
