New Delhi, Oct 6 (IANS) A city court Monday rejected the bail plea of Utsav Bhasin, the 19-year-old son of a Haryana-based industrialist, who allegedly rammed his BMW car into a motorcycle, killing one person and injuring the other.Utsav is presently in police custody.

Metropolitan Magistrate Ajay Goel rejected the bail plea, saying the investigations are in crucial stage and granting him the bail at this point of time would hamper the probe.

Utsav surrendered before Delhi Police Sep 27 a day after his anticipatory bail was rejected by the Delhi High Court.

Bhasin approached the court for bail after the police slapped additional charges against him under section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of the Indian Penal Code.

Bhasin, who was allegedly drunk at the time of the accident Sep 11, now faces stringent penal provisions as the police have amended the charges against him in the first information report (FIR).

Earlier, the FIR was filed under sections 279 (rash and negligent driving) and 337 (causing hurt and endangering life).

Bhasin was driving his BMW car when he hit two men on a motorcycle around 2.40 a.m. near Moolchand flyover in south Delhi.

While Anuj Singh, a BPO employee, succumbed to his injuries a day after the accident, Mrigank Srivastava, who was riding pillion, is recuperating.
