Television actress Ruhi Singh has been booked for allegedly assaulting police and then ramming her car into other parked vehicles in Mumbai.
The incident reportedly took place around 2 am when Ruhi and her two male friends, Rahul and Swapnil, were driving back from a party.
One of them wanted to use washroom, therefore, they stopped at a popular food outlet on the Linking Road stretch. However, the staff members at the outlet informed them that it was shut for the day and they couldn’t open it. The trio then lost their cool and started abusing the staffers and banging the door. One of the staffers then called the police to intervene.
Ruhi Singh’s car rammed into parked vehicles
When Mumbai Police reached the place, the trio reportedly misbehaved with them as well.
Minutes later, the actress banged her car at Santacruz damaging 7 vehicles (four two-wheelers and 3 cars). “When Ruhi and her two friends were leaving, she got behind the wheel and rammed the car into a few parked vehicles in Santacruz as she was under the influence of alcohol. The Santacruz police station has booked her for rash driving also,” said deputy commissioner of police Parmjit Singh Dahiya to a leading publication. This comes under IPC section 279 (rash driving) and under the Motor Vehicle Act for drunk driving.
A video of the incident has gone viral where Singh can be seen arguing with people who had gathered around her car.
According to the reports, the Khar Police have booked Ruhi, Rahul and Swapnil under the IPC section 353 (assault or criminal force deterring public servant to perform duty).
