Prateik Babbar booked for rash driving, refuses blood test


Actor Prateik Babbar has been booked by Goa police for rash driving. The actor’s car allegedly dashed a scooter on the Panaji-Mapusa highway, following which a case of rash and negligent driving was registered against him.

“Prateik Babbar, filed a complaint against Mr Correa, alleging that Correa smashed his car's window-shield”, inspector Paresh Naik told NDTV. "We have seized the car," told inspector Mr Naik to the portal, adding that a case under the Motor Vehicles Act has been registered and further probe is on. 

The police wanted his blood sample to check whether Prateik was driving his car under the influence of alcohol, the official said. The actor, however, refused to give blood samples.

"When (Prateik) Babbar was taken for medical examination at the state-run Asilo Hospital in Mapusa town, he refused to give his blood sample," Porvorim police station inspector Paresh Naik told news agency PTI.

The complainant, Paulo Correa, 21, alleged that Mr Babbar’s car dashed against his scooter when he was riding with his sister. After the mishap, Prateik Babbar abused them.
