Tuesday night meant trouble for Indian Idol singers Prajakta Shukre and the show’s season one winner Abhijeet Sawant, after Shukre rammed her car into a scooter in Santa Cruz, Mumbai, leaving two people seriously injured. Sawant came to her rescue, and reportedly got into a brawl with the crowd that had gathered at the spot.
The incident took place around midnight, when Shukre was on her way back from work in her Honda City. Witnesses claimed that she was in an inebriated state.
Sawant was taken to the Santa Cruz police station, where he was later given a clean chit and Shukre was sent for a medical examination to Bhabha hospital.
“Abhijeet Sawant is not involved in the incident as it was Shukre who was driving the car. It was after she met with the accident that she called Abhijeet for help,” said MA Ambole, officer on duty at the Santa Cruz police station. Shukre was arrested, but later released on bail.
“Medical examination revealed that Shukre was not under the influence of alcohol. A case has been registered for rash driving and causing grievous hurt,” added Ambole.
