New Delhi: CCTV footage in the Jaipur hit-and-run case has exposed the MLA’s son Siddharth Mehariya’s lie about not being intoxicated with liquor. In the CCTV footage Siddharth is spotted outside a bar and sitting behind the wheel.
Three people were killed and five others injured when a BMW car rammed into an auto rickshaw and a police PCR van near St Xavier’s School in the city.
Siddharth’s lawyer Deepak Chauhan had earlier claimed that the charges levied against his client were false; he also added a driver named Ramesh was responsible for the accident.
The police alleged that 20-year-old Siddharth was driving the vehicle in an inebriated state and the CCTV footage seems to be adding some evidence to it.
Siddharth Mehariya is the son of independent Rajasthan legislator Nand Kishor.
