Bollywood actor Dalip Tahil arrested for drunk driving
Bollywood actor Dalip Tahil allegedly under the influence of alcohol rammed his car into an autorickshaw on Sunday night injuring the two passengers inside it. He was later arrested by the Khar police.

The report says that the actor's car hit the autorickshaw from behind. He tried to flee from the scene in his car but couldn't as the road had been blocked by Ganeshotsav immersion processions.

According to a report published in The Hindu: "The incident occurred around 9 pm, when Khar resident Jenita Gandhi (21) was on her way home accompanied by her friend Gaurav Chugh (22). The police said their autorickshaw was passing by China Garden restaurant on CD Road in Khar when it was hit by a car from behind."

Two passengers asked the driver to step out of the car. The actor started arguing and pushed them. This led to a call to the police station after which the actor was taken into custody. According to reports the police officer said that the impact of the accident caused injury to the victims.

The police confirmed thereafter that the person driving the car was Tahil, whose full name is Dalip Tahilramani (65). The three involved in the accident were taken for a medical check up after which the police booked the actor for causing injury due to rash and negligent driving under IPC and also for driving under the influence of alcohol under the Motor Vehicles Act.

Senior police officer, Sanjay More, from Khar police station, confirmed the news to a leading publication that the actor was arrested and later granted bail. More also confirmed that actor was reluctant to give his blood sample for testing for alcohol traces, however, he was visibly in an inebriated state.
