A 20-year-old girl was killed after she was hit by a car and then dragged for a few kilometres on the road, being entangled in the wheels, the police informed on Sunday.
The police said that the condition of the girl after the incident was so bad, that after being dragged on, her clothes and even the back side of her body got ripped off.

The five accused, who were in the car were arrested.
According to the FIR lodged by the Delhi Police in the incident, two of the four accused Deepak Khanna and Amit Khanna borrowed the car from one of their friends at around 7 pm on December 31, 2022, and parked the car back at his house at around 5 am on January 1, 2023.
The FIR said that Deepak was driving the car while accused Manoj Mittal was sitting next to the driver’s seat.
