Mumbai: Ex-MLA Narendra Mehta’s son crashes high-end car on Bandra-Worli Sealink, booked for rash driving | Mumbai News – Times of India



MUMBAI: Former BJP MLA Narendra Mehta’s teenage son Taksheel Mehta had a narrow escape when he lost control of his luxury Lamborghini while taking it out for a spin.
Taksheel, who was driving the high-end car at high speed, rammed into the railing of the Bandra-Worli Sealink early on Saturday.
The Worli police have booked Taksheel under the IPC section 279 for rash and negligent driving and sections of the Motor Vehicle Act.
The police have seized the car and are probing the cause of the accident.
According to the police, the accident took at around 7.30am when Taksheel, who stays in Juhu, took the car to go to college and drove on the Worli-Sea Link and while speeding he rammed into the railing and the car broke down. Taksheel got minor scratches in the incident as well as minor burn injuries due to the opening of the internal airbag of the car. He was taken to Poddar Hospital where he was treated and allowed to go.
The police reached the spot and towed the car to the Worli police. They recorded the preliminary statement of Taksheel. The traffic police said that they suspect Taksheel was driving the car beyond the speed limit on the Sealink which they will check with the help of the CCTV cameras. “Taksheel was in a state of trauma and was sent to the hospital to get checked. His blood test ruled out alcohol,” said police.
Narendra Mehta represented the Mira-Bhayander constituency and in 2019 lost to Geeta Jain in the last Loksabha election. The businessman-turned-politician who invested in construction, health care and education projects has also served as the Mayor of Mira Bhayander.
Interestingly, this is the same car that the former MLA had gifted to his wife, Suman, on her birthday in 2016. Suman, had lost control of the car seconds after she started driving while trying to take a turn and rammed it into a stationary autorickshaw.
