The post mortem of Nishith Narayana and Kamani Raja Ravichandra conducted by forensic experts revealed that the they were not drunk during the accident.

On Wednesday morning, Andhra Pradesh Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MAUD) Minister P Narayana's son, Nishit Narayana, and his friend died after their car crashed into a pillar of the Hyderabad Metro Rail in Jubilee Hills.

A team of forensic experts from the Osmania Hospital and Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research conducted an autopsy on the bodies at the Apollo Hospital mortuary in Jubilee Hills.

According to Deccan Chronicle, both the victims died due to multiple fractures and severe injuries which caused heavy internal bleeding.

“There was no trace of alcohol in their bodies,” Dr. Surender Reddy, a forensic medicine in Apollo Hospitals told DC.

The accident had occurred around at around 3 am and the victims died on the spot.

"A watchman sleeping nearby told us that he woke up when he heard a big noise between 2-2:30 am and found that the SUV had hit the pillar. The car must have been travelling at a high speed because due to the impact, chips of concrete came off the solid metro rail pillar," a police official told the Indian Express.

It was also known that three challans were pending against the Mercedes Benz G63 AMG car driven by Nishit, on the charge of over-speeding, twice at Himayath Sagar and once at Nehru Outer Ring Road of Hyderabad. The car reportedly has clocked 154 kilometers per hour (kmph) in one of the violations.

Deccan Chronicle reported that the vehicle was registered in the name of Nspira Management Services Pvt Ltd. and a total of Rs 4,305 was pending against the vehicle.

However, the police have been reportedly unsure about the specific speed at which Nishith was driving but the impact showed that the vehicle was moving at abnormal speed, shown in the CCTV footage.

Meanwhile, most of the cabinet ministers and the ruling party leaders were shocked to know about the accident and reached Nellore to be with the family of the minister.

According to TOI report, Panchayat raj and IT minister, Nara Lokesh cancelled all his programmes and rushed to Nellore.

Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, who is right now in the US, expressed shock over the death of Narayana's son.

Telangana's Irrigation Minister Harish Rao also visited the hospital and consoled the family members. Nishith’s body has been shifted to Nellore and final rites will be performed in the Narayana Medical College campus on Thursday.
