- The Delhi University student sped away after the accident
- BMW X1 was travelling from Khalsa College to Kirori Mal
- The man was seen trying to run across to the divider
The accused, 21-year-old Abhinav Sahni, is a first year undergraduate student at Khalsa College - a short distance from the spot where the accident took place.
He was formally arrested a day later, on Thursday, and released on bail by the police.
A north district police officer said they were able to identify the accused on the basis of witness accounts and the CCTV footage.
Seeing the SUV approach him fast, Shiv Nath can be seen trying to run across to the divider, but gets hit by the vehicle which then comes to a halt.
Abhinav later told the police that Shiv Nath came in front of his car from out of nowhere and he could not apply the brakes in time. He added that he fled from the accident spot because he was scared.
