Kolkata: The prime accused in the Kolkata hit-and-run case Sambia Sohrab has been arrested after by sleuths from lalbazar but many questions still remain unanswered.
After his arrest on Saturday night Sambia was interrogated by Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime). Sources said that although Sambia tried to elude the cops, he confessed of his crime and said that he was hiding in a village in Ranchi to evade arrest, said sources.
However, it is still not clear that if Sambia was hiding in Ranchi, why did he return to Kolkata. Speculations are that Sambia’s arrest has been staged and it is a mutual pact between police and Sohrab family.
TMC leader Mohammad Sohrab, who is the father of Sambia was hiding along with his family after the incident. Initially the police did not take any steps owing to the affiliation of Sohrabs to TMC and lost vital hours.
The arrest came hours after Trinamool dusted the lapel off Sohrab on Saturday evening. TMC spokesperson Derek O’ Brien said that Mohammad Sohrab is a minor party leader and the party has no connection with him.
