Tathya Patel's another accident video surfaces; rams Thar into wall

A viral video has surfaced on social media where accused Tathya Patel is seen driving a Thar jeep with the same '93' number as the Jaguar, into a cafe's wall. No further police action was to be taken after this incident as a settlement of ₹40,000 was done with the cafe owner. It is noteworthy that while a police complaint wasn't lodged, even the complaint registered by the cafe owner to the traffic police has the name of 'Tathya Patel' missing.

Pragnesh Patel pulls all strings to cover son's crime; calls up associates in power

Soon after son Tathya Patel took nine lives with the Jaguar car on ISKCON bridge, father Pragnesh Patel arrived at the scene and allegedly threatened people to back off from assaulting his son. Pragnesh soon took away his son for treatment at CIMS Hospital in near Science City road.

As per the call detail records (CDR) of Pragnesh Patel, many significant heads were rang up on the morning of Jul 20. Calls to IPS officers, political leaders and even calls at chief minister's office were made, and settlement worth crores was offered by Pragnesh to the deceased's kins. Pragnesh also called up many prominent lawyers after the accident took place.

Friends warned Tathya to drive slower

On the night when the accident took place on ISKCON bridge, Tathya Patel was with his friends. They had repeatedly asked Patel to drive slower. But the silver spoon in Tathya's mouth barred the taste of consequence from his life, and thus, the accident took place taking nine innocent lives.
