Delhi, August 12: A speeding Porsche which allegedly hit another car and then rammed into a traffic signal at Tughlak Road area a few days back, is found to be from a company owned by BJP MLA Avtar Singh Bhadana’s son.
Police are piecing together the clues if the MLA’s son, Arjun Bhadana and a friend allegedly left the car and fled the spot.
DCP (New Delhi district) B K Singh told The Indian Express that they found the car and a FIR has been registered under IPC Section 279 (rash driving) at Tughlak Road police station following a complaint from one Mridul Tulsian, an engineering student.
“During the course of an investigation, we came to know that the recovered Porsche is registered with Gurgaon-based Krishna Arjun Buildtech Pvt Ltd. The director of the company is Arjun Bhadana. We have served a notice under Section 133 of the Motor Vehicle Act on the company, asking its officials to produce the errant driver,” he said.
When inquired with MLA Bhadana said about the incident, “I am not aware of any such accident. Yes, Krishna Arjun Buildtech Pvt Ltd is my son’s company. But I am not going to share any personal details.”
According to police, the accident held on August 5 when the 21-year-old complainant, Tulsian, was on his way back to home with his friends after having dinner at Pandara Road. They were in Tulsian’s Toyota Corolla Altis.
“Around 10.20 pm, Tulsian reached the traffic signal at Rajesh Pilot Marg and Prithviraj Road. He claimed he was crossing the junction when the signal turned green. All of a sudden, a speeding car hit their vehicle from the left, following which Tulsian’s car rammed into a road divider before hitting a traffic signal,” a senior police officer said.
The investigation has revealed that after hitting the vehicle, the errant driver tried to escape in the vehicle. However, at the next signal, the Porsche’s tyre got punctured and the driver and his friend were forced to dump the vehicle and flee. No casualty was reported, but police have registered a FIR for rash driving.
