Police has arrested the accused driver Anishek Butani, 20, who is an engineering student. Butani, who hails from Delhi, is a second year and is currently staying in Sewagram.

However, on Monday residents tried to block the traffic again. It was learnt that residents had threatened not to take the body for last rituals till police met their demands of assuring speed breakers or an over-bridge on the road.

Sonegaon cops, however, denied of any tension took place on the accident.
