Police said the driver has been identified as Harish Kumar, 32, a guest teacher at a government school in Yamuna Vihar. The two injured people, identified by their first names Rashid and Deepak, are undergoing treatment at Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital, police said, adding the two others who died in the accident are yet to be identified.
Police said the accused told them he swerved the car to the left in order to avoid hitting a beggar who was crossing the road. Though his claim is being verified, police said they suspect the man could have fallen asleep at the wheels.
On April 20, two people were killed after they were run over by a car allegedly driven by a class 12 student in north Delhi's Kashmere Gate.
