Kolkata Police today sent notice to Mohammed Sohrab in connection with the Red Road hit-and-run case in which his younger son Sambia Sohrab, the prime accused, and two of his friends were arrested.
Mohammed Sohrab, a former RJD MLA and stated to be a Trinamool Congress leader now, and his elder son Ambia Sohrab have been absconding since the January 13 mishap in which an IAF officer was killed.
A city court had earlier issued a look out notice for both Md Sohrab and Ambia.
“Kolkata Police personnel went to Md Sohrab’s residence in central Kolkata and delivered the notice,” a senior police officer said tonight.
Tomorrow, a Test Identification Parade (TIP) will be held at Presidency Jail to identify the driver of the Audi that mowed down the young IAF official 21-year-old Corporal Abhimanyu Gaud on January 13.
The arrested trio, Sambia and friends Sonu alias Shahnawaz Khan and Johnny, have been booked under IPC sections 120(B) (criminal conspiracy), 302 (murder), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence), 212 (harbouring offender) and 427 (mischief causing damage).
