One person died after a speeding Audi hit the autorickshaw he was travelling in from behind in Hyderabad, the police said. The incident took place on Sunday near Inorbit Mall in Madhapur area, while it was raining and the roads had turned wet and slippery.

Three people - the driver of the car, a co-passenger and the father of the driver - were arrested. They were returning from a party when the accident occurred. The three men were under the influence of alcohol, the police said, and registered cases under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Motor Vehicles Act.

News agency ANI has shared a video in which the black-colour luxury SUV is seen knocking the autorickshaw from behind, almost throwing it to the left. The car never stopped to check what had happened to the auto driver or passengers. According to the police, the 37-year-old victim was an employee at Prism Pub in Hyderabad.

On Tuesday, Cyberabad traffic police shared a 30-second clip of the incident on their Twitter handle. The video showed the accident from two different angles. The top right corner of the frame gave the detail of the day and time the Audi hit the autorickshaw and sped away.

The police mentioned that "reckless speed and drunk driving of an Audi car kills a passenger", and added that "a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder has been booked against the Audi driver and his associates".

The impact from behind sent the autorickshaw spinning to the left of the road where water had accumulated because of the rain.
