    Stupid Woman..!! Who gave her license..?
    Throw her in jail for at least 10 years..!!!

    let’s not ruin a life for such an incident. What she did was wrong. But, you do have to have compassion towards 22 years olds. They can’t think on their feet in a panic situation that lead to the other mishaps. It is the mob mentality that scares people. Look at what they did to the car. Can you assure her if she had stopped she wouldn’t have been harmed? I am not defending her, all I am saying is that our society is not the one that allows for compassion. These kids need our guidance not wrath. Let her do community service and pay for the victims. That sounds about right.
    Hell we are negotiating with terrorists but not willing to accept our own children!

    this is a hype because she had a mercedes. in many cases pedestrians also need to learn a lesson while crossing the road. the government should be pressurised to make proper zebra crossings that pedestrians must use and there has to be a fine if car drivers do not wait for someone at a zebra crossing.

    We have to become more aware. including car drivers and especially people who have bikes because they are the cause of many accidents for which car drivers are blamed as the car is bigger.

    Will you have the same opinion if she was your own daughter?
    Also do you realize that this is blown out of proportion because she was rich man daughter.
    Its a mistake and I guess the girl was scared.

  5. No Law for Dabang people says:

    There is different law for different people in INDIA. Dabang people can buy the law but poor people face the hard of law.
    In Chandigarh a drunk girl from Dabang family crushed to death a boy and a girl and she also get bail in few minutes.
    This is the law of India.

    Jai Hind.

    Aditi was not under the influence of liquor. The Police have said so in the article. This is purely a case of rich versus poor. Amit and Rohan are right. Let this not be biased. It was an accident, and that is it! Did the Police examine the pedestrian for abnormal behaviour? I don’t think so. It was an accident. Leave it at that. Aditi is young and learning. We are never perfect at whatever age! And why doesn’t the article talk about the ‘old woman’? Is this a case of sensationalism just because the accused is young and rich, and makes good headlines!! Journalism stinks, too!!!! Take care, even the media can be exposed, and is not beyond the law!

  7. Tejwani says:

    ry sad mishap…vry careless driving!! speed thrills, but kills…. i wann 2 c aditi behind of d jail…….so she never repeat dis mistake again!
    but u right man…..
    god save poor people of india. :( :( :(

    NM I wonder what would be your opinion if the elder woman who got hit was your own mother. This issue is not about rich and poor. This is about how we prefer to raise our kids. If her parents have had done a the good job this girl would have had courage to stop and take the congnizance of her mistake, she would have stopped and taken the elder lady to hospital rather than running scared and injuring others, irrespective of wheter she was driving Mercedes or humble 2 wheeler.
