In yet another incident of hit-and-drag case, a man's body was dragged for almost 10 kilometers by a car moving towards Noida in Uttar Pradesh at the Yamuna Expressway, the Uttar Pradesh police said on Tuesday.
The car had been travelling through Mathura when the stuck body of an individual caught the attention of security personnel at a toll booth in Mant.
The car was driven by a Delhi-based Virendra Singh, who is currently being interrogated by the police.
"There was a dense fog at the Expressway last night, hence there was the least visibility due to which the man who met with some accident stuck with his car," Superintendent of Police (SP Dehat) Trigun Bisen said quoting suspected accused Virendra Singh as saying.
