An unidentified driver – allegedly the son of a former Congress minister – an unidentified driver who was allegedly drunk has been charged with running over the car of an Indore resident businessman in Sihur, Madhya Pradesh, a police official said on Monday.
The incident, which was filmed in a video, was widely circulated. The car number revealed it was owned by Rohitap Singh, son of Hokuma Karada of Chagapur, a former Congress minister.
A police official said the incident occurred on Saturday evening when the 40-year-old trader, Dinesh Ahuja, and his partner were heading to Indore from Bhopal.
Those in the other car objected to the sports car colliding with their car and came out demanding compensation. They reportedly saw the man sitting in the driver’s seat drunk, and a glass filled with liquid was kept near the driver’s seat.
“Father of Dai Kareng, father of Ladai Karengi Bayzab, father of Thein Chalingi, Than (We will fight now. We will go to the police station now),” the man said when they sought money to compensate for the damages and crashed their car again.
