New development has emerged in the infamous case involving a Rajasthan MLA's son killing three people in an auto-rickshaw while driving his BMW.
Nand Kishore Maharia's son, Siddharth Maharia, who was arrested in July 2 last year following the accident that also injured five other people, has filed a complaint against six police officers in the Jaipur Metropolitan Court.
As per the police, Siddharth was drunk when he was driving the car and hit the auto-rickshaw, but the latter claims that he was not behind the wheel when the accident took place and that it was his driver. He also said that it was the auto-rickshaw driver's fault as he did not have a valid driving license and was driving negligently.
The driver had initially admitted that he was driving, but later on retracted his statement. CCTV footage also showed that Siddharth had been drinking heavily in hotels and bars hours before the accident.
Now, Siddharth's lawyer Goverdhan Singh has revealed to India Today that he has lodged a complaint before the Jaipur Court against the police for wrongful confinement along with his friend, criminal conspiracy and beating the two causing grievous injuries.
The Jaipur Metropolitan Court has taken cognizance of the charges against Jaipur Commissioner of Police Sanjay Agarwal, Adl CP Prafull Kumar, DCP (South) Manish Agarwal, and three other officers.
The judge has also asked Siddharth to produce witnesses after which the officers will be summoned through bailable warrants.
