The PTI report quoted a senior secretariat member, who said, "The wheel on the left rear-end of the Mercedes carrying Bachchan got detached from the vehicle on Dufferin Road when he was going to the airport to catch a flight for Mumbai. The car was provided by a travel agency and we have show-caused it over the incident." He also added that an initial investigation led to the discovery that the vehicle's "certificate of fitness" had expired.
