The son of a former Congress minister was charged for ramming the car of an Indore-based businessman in Sehore in Madhya Pradesh, a police official said on Monday.
The incident, captured on a video, shows Rohitap Singh, son of Hukuma Karada of Shajapur, a former Congress minister, in an allegedly inebriated state as he rams the SUV and later indulging in a fight with the trader.
A police official said the incident took place on Saturday night when trader Dinesh Ahuja (40) and his associate were going to Indore from Bhopal.
Those seated in the other car objected to the SUV hitting their car and stepped out seeking damages. They reportedly saw the man seated on the driver's seat in a drunk state, a glass filled with liquid was kept near the driver's seat.
"Ab ladai karenge, nahi ab ladai karenge bhaisaab, ab thane chalenge, thaane (We will fight now. We will go to the police station now)," the man said when they sought money for damages and rammed their car again.
