A 58-year-old widow from Nadiad reported her son to the cops for driving recklessly. She had repeatedly warned him against driving dangerously but to no avail. An accident on Sunday, which left her with a fractured shoulder, was the last straw.
Meena Patel, a resident of Degam Patel Faliyu in Nadiad, filed a complaint alleging rash driving against her son Anand at Vaso police station.
According to Patel’s complaint, on Sunday morning, she wanted to go to Nadiad to meet somebody. So, she asked Anand to drop her off. Since his motorcyle had developed a fault, he borrowed his friend’s motorcycle to drop her off. However, he did not check the vehicle’s brakes properly and was overspeeding, ignoring her pleas to go slow. A while later, he braked suddenly, causing the vehicle to skid and fall. Both mother and son were injured in the accident.
Anand took Patel to a nearby hospital where she underwent treatment for a fractured shoulder. She then decided to file a complaint against her son as a last-ditch attempt at course correction.
Vaso police filed a complaint under IPC Sections 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) against Anand Patel.
