This horrific accident happened late Thursday night near Jeevan Jyoti Nursing Home on Chaupasni Road. Zaid Ali, the 18-year-old son of CI Zulfiqar Ali, who was famous in the corruption case, went out for a car demanding a car from a friend. After partying late night, along with his two friends Afroz and Archit Gandhi, he was coming towards the city from Chaupasni’s side. Witnesses say that the Audi car, which was coming at a very high speed, slammed very hard on a speed breaker built there. The driver lost control over it due to high speed. Also, after hitting the speed breaker at high speed, the airbags in the car opened.
