UPDATE : Dave says “it wasn’t me, I wasn’t there” on his blog :

Just as I was about to go into a lunchtime meeting in Mumbai today, I received some terrible news. A British High Commission minibus driving journalists covering our visit, two members of my team, and High Commission staff, hit a woman who is now critically ill in hospital. We’re all deeply shocked by this dreadful accident and I know that the High Commission is co-operating very closely with the police to help them with their investigation, and is doing all it can to help the victim and her family

Quote of the Day
