Rajeshwari (28), the car driver who was on the run after mowing to death a construction labourer and injuring three of his colleagues in Jayanagar late Saturday, was granted bail here on Monday, hours after she surrendered before the police.

Witnesses had said that she drove her car in a rash and negligent manner ramming cars parked on roadside before knocking down the four men who were going home after work.

While Farooq (22) died on the spot, the other three have been hospitalised. After the accident, Rajeshwari rushed home in Jayanagar and fled with her husband and two children before locking up the house. Rajeshwari, who was also injured, remained untraceable till Monday when she surrendered before the Jayanagar police.
