Delhi businessman overtakes Vadra’s car, booked for rash driving

FrontThe officer said Rastogi was headed towards Lajpat Nagar from the Modi Mill flyover in Okhla at the time of the incident.

A Delhi businessman was penalised by traffic police for "rash driving" after his car overtook the cavalcade of Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

A police officer, who did not wish to be named, said the car of Saurabh Rastogi, a businessman who lives in Paschim Vihar, was chased and intercepted by police after Vadra's securityman called the police control room and complained that a car had driven past "dangerously".

The officer said Rastogi was headed towards Lajpat Nagar from the Modi Mill flyover in Okhla at the time of the incident.

"Rastogi was in a Maruti Ritz and Vadra's cavalcade was ahead of him. We were told he had been honking continuously. In a bid to overtake the cavalcade, he accelerated and sped past Vadra's car. It was then that a securityman travelling with Vadra made a PCR call. The traffic police were also informed," the officer said.

Rastogi's car was chased by traffic policemen and intercepted near Amar Colony in south-east Delhi. "He was issued a challan for dangerous driving under Section 184 of the Motor Vehicles Act and let off," the officer said.
