Bollywood actor Alok Nath’s son has been booked for alleged drunken driving in suburban Mumbai, police said on Tuesday.
The actor’s son, Shivang Nath, accompanied by three friends, including two women, was returning from a birthday party in his car. He was driving when traffic police asked him to stop while checking for drunk driving.
Instead of stopping the vehicle, Shivang has sped away trying to flee. The police chased after him and intercepted the car and brought him to Santacruz police station.
Since Shivang was allegedly in an inebriated state and not having the driving licence, his female friends tried to argue with the police that they were driving the vehicle, police said.
Later the Bandra Traffic Police booked him for drunken driving without a license and disobeying police order. He was asked to pay a fine of Rs 2,600 and was let off on the condition that he would remain present in court for further proceedings.
The vehicle has been impounded by the Bandra Traffic Division. Alok Nath is known for his work in Hindi films and television. – CINEWS
