Thumbs down

4 lowlifes in a souped-up Honda City chase down a young woman on a 2-wheeler through the streets of Chennai in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Things get worse, she gets knocked off the bike and is killed on the spot.

Man...I just hope these guys are not let off by bribing someone! This is worse than just drunken driving..these guys chased her down and ran over her!!!

This was NOT an accident...its as good as murder.

Rtech,
They were driving a souped up Honda..right? Which means they must be quite moneyed..thats it. Enough to get out of any situation in this country...we all know that. One can absolutely getaway with anything if moneyed! Have money..will KILL is the motto..I don't support this but thats whats going to happen. The case will be dragged forever & ultimately they boys will be free to murder someone else. Life is very cheap in this country. Sad.

Yup, Venkatesan/Venkatesh, same difference. That's your guy, right there.

Did the car have "Venom Racing" stuck all over it?

My advice to them "Don't play around with Venom, if you can't handle the sting".

Should get 15 years for the "accident", if we can all it that. And say....... add another 10 years, from my side, for using a Honda for his dirty work.

They showed the car on NDTV this evening. The front left section is totally smashed, amazingly the tyres were all intact.

I agree. Few years ago a family was wiped out by a drunk driver in Bangalore. He was driving a red Cielo No justice till date. Ajmat, do you remember?

The article says that the Honda City was redesigned as an SUV. Looks like these guys were regularly (or rather permanently) drunk.
They should be put away for really long time. They need it.
