Mumbai: The mystery over the identity of the person who was driving the Rs 4 crore Aston Martin sports car involved in an accident at Peddar Road three days ago, remains to be solved.

An eyewitness has, meanwhile, told Zee 24 Taas that Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani’s son Akash Ambani was in the car when the accident took place. She also alleged that Akash was “fully drunk” at the time of the mishap. A Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) spokesman has, however, rejected the allegations.

Given the fact that several eye-witnesses have mentioned that there were two escort cars or SUVs following the Aston Martin, it is likely that some VVIP kid was driving the Aston Martin. A chauffeur would not have two other expensive vehicles following him. A driver would not have been able to get away almost immediately after the incident, given the fact that it was almost 2 am when the crash and pile-up happened. The injured persons who tried to look for the driver of the speeding Aston Martin have testified that the driver had disappeared within a few minutes. Further, no driver would drive a Rs 4 crore car at a speed of over 100 kms per hour.

The Gamdevi police, who are probing the matter, also said the black Aston Martin was driven by a chauffeur.

On Monday night, a chauffeur employed with Reliance had approached Gamdevi police, claiming he was at the wheels of the Aston Martin when the accident happened.

Police said they will corroborate the statements given by Bansi Joshi with his mobile call records and its location before arresting him. The police are apparently even waiting for the call details records and should identity and get the call records of all other possible culprits who could have been driving the super car.

The eyewitness, however have accused the police of a major cover up and hushing up the matter at the insistence and pressure of the top bosses at Reliance.

The mishap took place in the wee hours of Sunday when the luxury car (MH01-BK-99) was being driven at a high speed on Peddar Road. The Aston Martin spun out of control and rammed into an Audi. A wheel of the Aston Martin came off and it then collided with a Hyundai Elantra. Afterwards, the driver of the Aston Martin fled from the spot, leaving the vehicle behind.

The accident which took place on Peddar Road in the wee hours of Sunday has now reached social media with one of the victims, Smriti Mishra, posting photographs of the accident on Twitter and Facebook and asking people to raise their voices against those involved in the incident.

Meanwhile, the Gamdevi police, who are investigating the case, said they have so far been unable to identify the man who was driving the car. The statements of eight persons, including the victims of the mishap, have been recorded.

The Aston Martin is reportedly owned by the Reliance Group. The police have recorded statements of some of the company’s employees. On Monday evening, Bansi Joshi, a driver with Reliance Group, came forward and told the police that he was behind the wheel when the accident occurred. His claim is yet to be ascertained.

The incident occurred at around 1.30 am on Sunday on Peddar Road, in front of Prabhu Kunj. The Aston Martin (MH01-BK-99) was allegedly being driven by a stout youth at high-speed, headed toward Haji Ali. The driver allegedly lost control and rammed into an Audi (MH14-DN-6666) in front of it.

Due to the impact of the collision, the Audi crossed over the divider and hit a luxury bus and then a Hyundai Elantra. Soon after, the driver of the Aston Martin fled from the spot, leaving the vehicle behind.

A senior police officer said, “We will not make any arrests till we are sure who was behind the wheel.”

The police are in the process of scrutinising footage from CCTV cameras in the area and said they will soon find the person who was driving the luxury car.

Mishra, one of the occupants of the Elantra, said, “The police did not do their job properly. While we were the ones who were injured and in shock, they were more interested in knowing the condition of those in the other cars. It appeared that they were going by the cost of the cars. They started off with the Aston Martin and then went on to the Audi without even glancing at our vehicle, which was also wrecked.”

Mishra further said the policemen who had come of the spot were under the influence of alcohol.

Smriti’s relative, who was also in the car and is pregnant, sustained a fracture in the nose. “We did an ultrasound test on Monday and due to the mishap, she is facing minor complications,” she said.
