Intel India ex-chief dies after speeding car hits his cycle in Navi Mumbai

The credits for working on the Intel 386 and 486 microprocessors went to Avtar Saini, a suburban Chembur resident.
Police in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, claimed that Avtar Saini, the former head of Intel India's country office, was struck by a speeding taxicab as he was cycling. When Avtar Saini, 68, and other bikers were riding their bicycles on Palm Beach Road in the Nerul region on Wednesday morning at around 5.50 a.m., an accident occurred.

Who was Avtar Saini?

Suburban Chembur resident Avtar Saini was acknowledged as contributing to the development of the Intel 386 and 486 microprocessors.

Additionally, Avtar Saini oversaw the Pentium CPU design for the business.

The 68-year-old NRI, who loved to ride a bike, was scheduled to return to the US the next month.

After learning of the event, his US-based son and daughter are on en route to India.

Other family members of Avtar Saini, who are living in Mumbai, have visited the hospital to retrieve the body, according to a police officer from the NRI Coastal police station.

After his wife passed away from illness a few years prior, Avtar Saini lived alone in Chembur when he arrived in Mumbai.

Cyclists in the CACG cycling group informed HT that Avtar Saini always wore safety gear while he rode or walked.

Avtar Saini spent 22 years working at Intel.

He worked on the 64-bit Intel microprocessors during the initial stages of the Itanium processor's development.

After departing Intel in January 2004, he worked for several smaller, but no less innovative, tech firms, including Montalvo Systems, where he oversaw operations in India from 2005 to 2008.

A cab driver was detained

The taxi driver was apprehended by onlookers at the scene of the accident, turned over to the police, and charges of reckless driving and negligence were filed against him. Based on multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by doing an act rashly or negligently so as to endanger human life), and 304-A (causing death of any person by doing any rash or negligent act not amounting to culpable homicide), in addition to the Motor Vehicles Act, the police have officially filed a formal complaint (FIR) against the taxi driver.

Taxi driver attempted to run away

Avtar Saini's bicycle was struck from behind by a speeding taxi, and the rider attempted to flee as the bike's frame was trapped between the cab's front wheels.
