MUMBAI: The wife of a BJP MLA drove her newly-gifted saffron Lamborghini into an auto-rickshaw within seconds of taking her car out for the first time.
Mira-Bhayander MLA Narendra Mehta had surprised his wife Suman Mehta on her birthday by gifting her the Rs5.5-crore luxury car.
“Happy Birthday To My Dearest Wife Suman .... ” the MLA posted on Facebook while sharing pictures of his wife.
According to witnesses, Suman lost control of the car seconds after she started driving while trying to take a turn and drove it into a stationary auto-rickshaw.
No one was hurt but the rickshaw’s headlight and outer shell were damaged.
The driver didn’t press charges as Narendra Mehta compensated for the damages.
The MLA played down the incident by saying, “My wife has 18 years of experience and has driven Audi and other imported cars. The car just touched the front of the auto and it was not damaged. Roadside mechanics cannot repair the car, which is currently parked in school premises,” he said.
