Mulk actor Prateik Babbar allegedly knocked down a youth in Goa’s Porvorim town Wednesday and then held an argument with him, reported news agency PTI. A case of dangerous and rash driving has been filed against him after his car dashed a scooter.
The incident happened on Panaji-Mapusa highway on Wednesday evening, said inspector Paresh Naik of the Porvorim police station. Paulo Correa, the complainant, alleged that a car driven by Prateik Babbar dashed against his scooter when he was riding with his sister. After the accident, there was an altercation and Prateik Babbar used filthy language against them, he alleged.
Prateik Babbar, on his part, filed a complaint against Mr Correa, alleging that Correa smashed his car’s window-shield, the police official said. “We have seized the car,” said inspector Mr Naik, adding that a case under the Motor Vehicles Act has been registered and further probe is on.
“We have registered the case of an accident under the Motor Vehicle Act. One person was injured, but not seriously,” police inspector, Porvorim, Paresh Naik said. The accident took place in Porvorim, north of Panaji, at around 8:30 pm.
Prateik Babbar made an impact in the critically-acclaimed Mulk co-starring Taapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor where he played a young man in a Muslim family who turns fundamentalist.
