Aditya Narayan, son of famous singer Udit Narayan made headlines sometime back for his altercation with the Indigo airline staff. The young singer was recently involved in a road accident and was arrested after that. He was later released on bail.
What happened exactly?
The singer was booked in Lokhandwala on Monday after crashing his Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV into an auto rickshaw. The incident took place outside Indralok Building at around 12:30 PM. Narayan then took the auto-driver, Rajkumar Palekar and the passenger, Surekha Palekar to the Kokilabben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital. Aditya also sustained a minor injury on his hand.
Aditya misjudged a U-turn and hit the auto-rickshaw from the rear. Police officers say that it did not look like a case a drunk driving. However, cops booked Aditya after the complaint from the passenger, Surekha. Aditya was sent for a medical test and reports are awaited. Police says that the reports will come today.
A police officer who is involved in the investigation told HT,
Narayan did not try to escape from the spot and took the injured to the hospital. The driver has suffered head injuries and the passenger has also received injuries. Whether the injuries are life-threatening or not, I will not comment on that as the doctors are treating them. We have registered an FIR under sections 279 (punishment for rash driving), 338 (punishment for causing grievous hurt) read with section 184 of Motor Vehicles Act of the Indian Penal Code and waiting for the report of his medical test to check whether he was under the influence of alcohol or not,
The driver of the auto rickshaw received head injuries while the passenger received minor injuries. It is not known if they have been discharged yet. The medical reports will come today and following that, Aditya will be questioned about the incident. The cops have already recorded the statement of Surekha, who lodged the formal complaint.
Narayan is reportedly admitted to the hospital for treating the injuries he suffered during the impact. He is expected to be discharged soon. He has been booked under the Sections of 338 (causing grievous hurt act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 279 (rash driving or riding on public way). Both the sections are bailable.
