Days after a speeding Porsche allegedly hit another car, which then rammed into a traffic signal at Tughlak Road area, police have found that the luxury vehicle is owned by a company that has BJP MLA Avtar Singh Bhadana’s son as director. Police are probing 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 recovered the car and an FIR has been registered under IPC Section 279 (rash driving) at Tughlak Road police station after they received a complaint from one Mridul Tulsian, an engineering student.

“During the course of 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 contacted, MLA Bhadana said, “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 incident took place on August 5 when the 21-year-old complainant, Tulsian, was returning 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.

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 an FIR for rash driving.

“People at the spot clicked photos of the two persons, who got out of the Porsche after its tyre got punctured. The pictures have been shared with the investigating officer,” police sources said. Police added that after they were informed about the incident, they recorded statements of all eyewitnesses.

      Please do not say anything to BJP, this car is a foreign car and was built to be driven with great speed. In fact, this car was imported by UPA government so they are responsible for this and the Mughals and the Gandhi family are also responsible as well. In fact, if sources are to be believed, the errant driver was rushing to Gorakhpur to take stock of the situation of the unfortunate infant death so he cannot be blamed and the road which was created during UPA rule is to be blamed. We must bring in scholars such as smriti irani, yogi, khattar to identify causes that usually lead people to blame BJP for no reason

        It looks like Porsche 718 at an average on-road price of about one crore!! We should be proud an MLA's son owns such a car. We have truly become rich and mighty. Eshwaro Rakshatu. Jai Hind.

                  UPA's decade long rule was much safer for Indian than 3 years of BJP rule. In 2019, Bjp will learn a good lesson.
