Earlier, a new CCTV footage surfaced showing the victim, who died after being dragged by a car here, leaving a hotel with her friend on her scooty.

The 20-year-old girl, identified as Anjali, died in the early hours of January 1 after her scooty was hit by a car and was dragged for around 12 kms under the Baleno car on the city's roads.
