An Elante Mall security guard was killed in a hit-and-run accident near the number 4 settlement light spot on Friday night.

Police said the deceased, Inderjeet, who was in his 30s, was a resident of Sector 25.

After finishing his work at the Elante shopping center in the industrial zone, he was driving home on his Honda Activa around midnight.

When he reached the settlement’s number 4 traffic light, a gallop, believed to have been driven recklessly, hit him from behind and drove off.

Another security guard, who was in his own vehicle, witnessed the crash and called for help. Inderjeet was taken to Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32. But he died during treatment.

Police said the victim and his colleague were unable to write down the gallop number. With no direct CCTV footage from the scene, police are looking for cameras near the crash site to identify the offending vehicle.

Meanwhile, a case under Sections 279 (reckless driving or driving on a public highway), 337 (causing injury by an act endangering the life or personal safety of another) and 304-A (causing the death by negligence) of the Indian Penal Code was registered at the Industrial Estate Police Station.
