Talking about the incident, founder of Andheri Lokhandwala Oshiwara Citizen’s Association, Dhaval Shah told Indian Express, “It was quite a major accident. Sidharth was driving from Mega Mall and lost control on the way. He hit a pole and the collided with close to five cars. Since the actor was driving a luxury car, he wasn’t affected much. But the people in the other cars were injured. He apparently did not look drunk but only further investigations can prove the same.”
We have registered a case against him. 1 person has been injured & 3 cars have been damaged. We have taken his blood sample.
