A Mercedes car knocked down a biker in Four Bungalows area in the wee hours recently and a passer-by claimed Bollywood singer Mika was behind the wheels, a charge denied by the artiste.

Mika said that he was passing by the accident site when he saw the injured biker adding that he picked up the victim and admitted him to the nearest hospital here.

Police said that according to initial inquiry Mika didn't seem to be involved.

"The accident happened around 4.15 am in the morning. An FIR is still to be lodged as the biker is in the hospital and not in the state to speak anything. The owner of the four wheeler is under our custody. According to the initial inquiry Mika doesn't seem to be involved in the case," a police official said.

According to Mika, "Rahul Vaidya (singer) and I were in my Toyota Fortuner car, driving home at 4.30 am when we saw a small crowd collected on the road. There seemed to have been an accident between a Mercedes and a motorcycle. There was a boy was on the road, bleeding profusely with cuts on his neck.

"So I took the victim and the person in the Mercedes to the nearest hospital. I also called up the victim's mother and informed her where to come. I got a case registered," Mika said.

"I know some people are claiming that it was my Mercedes, which is completely baseless and untrue as I don't possess a Mercedes, I have a Hummer and a Fortuner. In fact, the case in the police station is also registered against the owner of the Mercedes," the singer added.
