MUMBAI: In yet another interesting twist to the car crash case involving an Aston Martin owned by Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Group, a woman driver whose Audi was smashed in the accident has denied reports that Reliance Industries gave her a new Audi A6 as compensation.
Foram Ruparel, 25, was driving her Audi on the night of December 8 when it was hit by Aston Martin which overturned and then smashed into a Hyundai Elantra belonging a corporate executive Vikram Mishra.
There were reports on Thursday that both Ruparel and Mishra have got brand-new cars from Reliance as compensation and that the two have decided not to pursue the case.
But later Ruparel denied that she has got new Audi as compensation from Reliance. She said her insurance company got her the new Audi A6. But her claim also raised questions because insurance claims don’t get settled so quickly.
The accident happened on Peddar Road in south Mumbai on the night of December 8 when Aston Martin hit Ruparel’s Audi.
According to reports, the driver lost control as he was driving the Aston Martin very fast. The car hit Ruparel’s Audi, flipped over the divider and then crashed into a Hyundai Elantra belonging to corporate executive Vikram Mishra.
Ruparel, who has been changing her statements as to who was the driver, finally identified Reliance employee Bansilal Joshi as the one who was driving the Aston Martin. He had turned himself over to police a day after the accident as the driver of the Aston Martin involved in the crash.
Social media has been buzz with speculation that Mukesh Ambani’s son Akash Ambani might have been the driver of the Aston Martin involved in the crash.
