New Delhi: Union minister Smriti Irani on Saturday lodged a complaint with the Delhi police and alleged that four drunk youth in a car chased and overtook her twice in a rash and negligent manner in central Delhi’s Chanakyapuri area on Saturday evening.
The matter was first brought to the notice of the police around 5.18 pm through a call made to the police control room by Ms Irani’s PSO. “The caller claimed that four men in a Hyundai Santro car misbehaved with Ms Irani and were following her car,” said a senior police officer.
The call was immediately transferred to the nearest patrolling vehicle that chased the suspicious car.
Dependra Pathak, chief spokesperson of the Delhi police, said that the four occupants of the car were taken into custody and brought to the Chanakyapuri police station for questioning and legal proceedings.
During the interrogation, Mr Dependra Pathak said that the four identified themselves as students of Ram Lal Anand College. “The students were sent to a government hospital to ascertain if they were drunk at the time of the incident. Their medical examination reports confirmed that the four were drunk,” said Mr Pathak.
