A non-cognisable (NC) offence has been registered against industrialist Ness Wadia for allegedly abusing and assaulting his driver, police said on Thursday.
According to the complainant, Ness had asked the driver to cover the distance between Parel in Central Mumbai to Fort in South Mumbai within ten minutes last evening, a senior officer said. The distance is tentatively 24 km.
The complainant stated that as he could not cover the distance within ten minutes as directed, Wadia abused him and also beat him up.
The driver, whose name is withheld by police, approached MRA Marg police station and lodged a complaint against Wadia.
Wadia Group could not be reached for comment immediately.
