Cops visited the place and shifted the students to a women police station. But, he couldn't make it and was declared brought dead. The police immediately rushed to the spot and took the accused under custody.

According to Kushaiguda Inspector K Chandrashekar, the driver of the auto, Ishanya Pathil Reddy, was found not to have consumed liquor.

The girl, a student of a prestigious engineering college, was accompanied by three others in the auto at the time of the incident. "They tried to flee the spot but we caught hold of them and called the police", a relative of Ashok said. Earlier, another second year engineering student became responsible for the death of a girl, her uncle and grandpa by driving in an inebriated condition at the upscale Banjara Hills area in the city. Bharathi is a resident of Nallakunta while Harika, the daughter of Malakpet Inspector A Gangi Reddy, lives in Kompally.
