Drunk duo in SUV hit police car in Kerala Guv’s convoy, arrested

Two inebriated men in an SUV were arrested here after they breached security to enter the convoy of Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan and hit a police vehicle, officials said on Saturday.

The incident took place around 10.45 pm on Friday when the Kerala Governor was in the city for a programme, the Noida police said, adding no one was injured in the collision.

Khan had a programme at the Express Zenith society in Sector 77, under Sector 113 police station of the area. After the event, he left for Delhi from Noida with a pilot car and an escort vehicle of the Noida police in his fleet, according to an official statement.

“At around 10.45 pm, when the fleet reached near metro station Sector 76, the driver of a black-coloured Mahindra Scorpio UP 16 DM 3155 obstructed the VIP fleet while driving rashly and negligently. The escort police team signalled the SUV to stay away from the fleet. However, a little later the SUV hit a traffic police vehicle in the fleet,” the police said. Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Noida) Shakti Mohan Avasthy said the two men who were inside the Mahindra Scorpio were immediately taken into custody by the police.
