Bengaluru: The 25-year-old man, who dragged an elderly man who was clinging to his scooter 600 metres on the road was remanded in judicial custody on Wednesday January 18. The Govindraja Nagar police arrested Sahil Yasin Lotiya, a resident of Nayandahalli, and booked him for an attempt to murder on Tuesday.  

It can be recalled that Mutthappa Shivayogi Thontapur (71) had clung to Lotiya’s scooter in a bid to stop him after it hit the former’s SUV.

According to the police, Lotiya appeared before the 34th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Court on Wednesday. The court remanded him in judicial custody for 14 days instead of requiring police custody. He was taken to Bengaluru Central Prison at Parappana Agrahara.

During interrogation, Lotiya admitted that what he did was wrong and that he did not stop the vehicle out of fear of the consequences. Thontapur was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday after being admitted there for observation.
