Ghaziabad (UP), Dec 14 (PTI) A man in an inebriated state crushed the leg of a filling station worker under his SUV here, police said on Saturday.

The victim, Sanjay, was on duty on Wednesday evening when the SUV passed through the filling station and crushed his leg, he said.

The accused, identified as Ankit, was known to the victim and fled after the incident, the SHO said.

Sanjay was rushed to a nearby hospital which referred him to All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), the SHO said.

At AIIMS Delhi, Sanjay's right leg had to be amputated, he added.

Police have detained Ankit's father for questioning, the SHO said.
