Bollywood's famous singer Aditya Narayan on Monday arrested for allegedly hitting an autorickshaw. He hit an autorickshaw with his Mercedes Benz car and injuring a woman passenger and a senior citizen autorickshaw driver. He was later released on bail.
The incident took place around 12:30 pm when Aditya was taking a U-turn and failed to judge the traffic. The incident took place in front of Indralok building, Lokhandwala back road, Andheri (West). Aditya also sustained a minor injury on his hand.
An officer from Versova police station also said that “He misjudged while taking a U-turn and hit the auto-rickshaw from behind with his car, injuring the driver and a woman passenger".
Another officer from Versova police station said that the injured Rajkumar Palekar(64), the autorickshaw driver, and Surekha Shivekar, the 32-year-old passenger, were taken to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital by Narayan himself. “Prima facie it did not look like a case of drink and drive but we are waiting for his medical reports,” added the officer.
The officer said the injuries were serious and the injured were treated in a nearby hospital. “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,” added the officer.
