Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 8) Namdeo Chavan and his driver were injured in an accident in Chembur on Monday. A car that was pushed ahead by a speeding jeep rammed into Chavan's official Mahindra Scorpio vehicle near the Diamond Garden signal. The jeep driver, Santacruz resident Ram Shedge, was arrested by the Chembur police.
Chavan was travelling on the Sion-Trombay, when a Fiat Linea car rammed into the Scorpio while taking a U-turn from the signal.
"As the DCP's car was passing through the area at around 11.50 pm, a Fiat Linea car stopped to allow him passage at the signal. A jeep rammed into the Linea from behind. The impact was such that the car swerved ahead and collided with the DCP's car," said senior police inspector B B Rathod of Chembur police station.
Chavan and his driver, constable Narayan Shelke, suffered minor injuries in the accident. While Chavan suffered head injuries to his head, Shelke suffered an injury on the right hand. They were taken to Lilavati Hospital and discharged after preliminary medical aid.
"I was on my way home when the accident took place. I have a cut on the forehead and a few other injuries. The injuries, however, are minor," said Chavan.
"We have booked the jeep driver under Sections 279 (rash and negligent driving) and 337 (causing hurt). He was later let off on bail," said Rathod.
