Who is Sambia Sohrab? Here's what we know about the man whose speeding car killed an IAF official

Ambia Sohrab

Sambia Sohrab, prime accused in the Red Rad hit-and-run case, has been arrested by Kolkata Police.

Corporal Abhimanyu Gaud, an Air Force drill instructor, was overseeing the Republic Day parade rehearsal at Red Road in Kolkata when a car barged in and ran him over on Wednesday.
The brutally-injured 21-year-old was rushed to the Army Command Hospital, where he was declared brought dead.
The swanky new car that took this young IAF official's life belongs to Ambia Sohrab, the son of a TMC leader in Kolkata. Initially, he was suspected to have been behind the wheels that day.
Latest reports, however, have added a new twist to the case as various evidence now points at Ambia's brother, Sambia Sohrab (also known as Tousiff) to have been driving the car when Corporal Gaud was run over. 
Here are some things you should know about Ambia Sohrab:
  1. Sohrab's brand new Audi was driven through multiple guard rails and barged into the parade rehearsal at around 6:30am on Wedneday.
  2. Records of the showroom from where the Audi was purchased show the car to be registered against a company belonging to Sohrab's father.
  3. His father, Mohammed Sohrab, is a former RJD MLA from the Burrabazar area in Kolkata. He is now a Trinamool Congress leader.
  4. The Kolkata police said the showroom records state that "the car purchased for Rs 90 lakh belonged to Sohrab's son, Ambia Sohrab."
  5. Ambia Sohrab's Facebook profile lists him as the proprietor of Amby International and the director of Aafreen group of companies.
  6. Ambia Sohrab is also a part of his family business of construction and fruit wholesale in Central Kolkata.
  7. Last year in December, Sohrab had hit the manager of a discotheque on Park Street when he was denied entry. When the bouncers came forward, Sohrab is said to have threatened them saying his "father is an ex-MLA and now a Trinamool leader".
  8. In 2006, Sohrab was detained for slapping a traffic sergeant on Park Street after breaking traffic rules. He was, however, released soon.
  9. Most of the photographs uploaded on his Facebook profile are of luxurious cars, with him posing with them.
  10. Sohrab, along with his father and brother Sambia, have been on the run since the incident. A look out notice has been filed against three.
