The Chief Judicial Magistrate Court has remanded Krishnappa (58) in police custody for 12 hours, from Friday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Electronics City traffic police had filed an application before the magistrate seeking custody for 10 days to question him about the accident in which Mr. Krishnappa, who was driving a sports utility vehicle, allegedly ran over four persons and injured six. The accident occurred on Hosur Road junction near Parappana Agrahara on Monday night.

Mr. Krishnappa surrendered before the court on Wednesday.

“We may not able to prove he was inebriated on the day of the accident. We will build the case based on other evidence,” the police said.
