Jhaverbhai had gone to a wedding ceremony in Khamdahad village of Dharampur taluka on May 12. He was returning home from a wedding ceremony at 1.30 pm. Then his bike ran out of petrol, so he left his bike on the side and was standing on the road, when an unknown car driver hit him, causing serious head injuries and he became unconscious.
