Mohammed Nalapad, son of Karnataka Congress MLA NA Harris, who allegedly rammed his supercar Lamborghini Gallardo into vehicles and a kiosk, injuring 4, on Bellary road in Bengaluru on February 9, said that he was not in the car which met with the accident.
Bengaluru Joint Commissioner of Police, Traffic, Ravikante Gowda told ANI, "Mohammed Nalapad appeared before the investigating officer today. He was arrested following interrogation. We are collecting evidence and will file a charge sheet shortly."
Nalapad is out on bail, in connection with the matter where he had assaulted a man in a pub in Bengaluru in 2018.
"I was not in the car which met with accident. I was travelling in a Lamborghini car which was moving ahead of the car. However, I called people to rescue the victims. We took them to the hospital and paid their hospital bill," said Mohammed Nalapad.
In a shocking video that is going viral online, a Lamborghini Gallardo worth at least ₹1.50 crore met with a sorry fate in Bengaluru when its driver rammed the supercar against a traffic post.
The short video clip of the incident shows the green Gallardo at a traffic signal along side a white Porsche and a black Audi before taking off at a lightening speed. Within seconds, however, the supercar turns to left and this is probably where the driver loses control and slams the car straight into a traffic post.
While local cops are investigating the incident, it once again comes as a stern reminder about the skill and expertise required to control a supercar, especially on Indian roads.
The Gallardo from Lamborghini is one of the finest models from the Italian maker and is capable of producing maximum power of over 500 bhp. There is also 540 Nm of torque at ready disposal which gives the supercar its propulsion power. Raved by automotive enthusiasts around the world, the Gallardo has attained an iconic status over the past several years and demands to be driven by people who understand its capabilities completely and remain in control when behind the wheels.
