Bollywood singer Sophie Choudry met with an accident on Tuesday night when an autorickshaw rammed into her Mercedes. The police have arrested the auto driver.
According to the Hindustan Times, the accident took place on November 20 at around 9.15 pm on 16th Road, in front of Khar Gymkhana at Khar (West), but the police were informed only by 10.30 pm. Sophie Choudry has alleged that the driver had no driving licence and had started driving just a week ago.
“I was on my way home when the speeding autorickshaw tried to cut the lane and cross us. He misjudged the distance between the vehicles and rammed his vehicle into my new car, pulling out the grill and bumper. We then stopped him. My car is insured and the insurance will take care of the damage, which is over one lakh,” Sophie Choudry told the leading daily.
The autorickshaw driver has been identified as Anees Ahmed (21). The Khar Police have booked Ahmed under sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant sections of the Motor Vehicle act, and was later produced in court.
