A teenager was killed when a Telangana minister's car mowed him down near Nirmal town, about 200 km from Hyderabad on Saturday.

Endowments Minister Indirakaran Reddy was not in the vehicle when the incident occurred.

The driver was going to a temple to pick up the Minister's family when the car knocked down the 15-year-old student riding a motorcycle.

The car, being driven at a high speed, hit the bike from rear side and dragged the boy to a few feet before coming to halt.

A profusely bleeding Satwik, a student of Class 9, was shifted to a hospital in Nizamabad, where he succumbed to his injuries.

The entire incident was captured on a CCTV camera.

Following a protest by the victim's relatives demanding justice, police booked a case against the driver and arrested him.

The minister later posted on Twitter that the vehicle was not part of the convoy and that he was not present when the accident took place. He also claimed that the biker was at fault as he was speeding.

The driver was reportedly arrested by the police.
