The passengers were identified as Jenita Gandhi, 21, and Gaurav Chugh, 22.

 

“The impact of the collision caused Ms Gandhi sustain a severe jolt to her back and neck. Ms Gandhi and Mr Chugh got off the autorickshaw and saw the car trying to flee towards Santacruz. The car could not get far as the street was crowded due to Ganeshotsav immersion processions,” an officer with the Khar police told the Hindu.

The actor was booked for causing injury due to rash and negligent driving and driving under the influence of alcohol. He refused to give a blood sample and was released on bail. The three involved in the accident were taken for a medical checkup.

A photograph of the actor waiting at the police station has since been shared online.
