The official car of the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, was involved in a minor accident when it brushed the car of a doctor on Wednesday morning. No one was injured in the incident. An accident diary report was filed in the LT Marg police station so that the owner of the car can claim insurance.
According to a police source, the incident took place at 10.40 am. A police official said, “Commissioner Ahmad Javed was headed to his office at Crawford Market. The escort was following.”
The source added, “The incident took place opposite Kamat Hotel on Lokmanya Tilak Marg near LT Marg police station. A taxi took a sudden turn and to prevent it from dashing into his car, the commissioner’s driver swerved and dashed into another car. It was a Honda Civic and was driven by a doctor, Anjali Patil, a resident of Gamdevi in Grant Road.” The commissioner’s car, a Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, hit her car from behind.
