Telugu actress Anjali’s boyfriend, Jai Sampath, who is primarily known for playing the lead roles in Tamil films, was caught driving under the influence of alcohol, rash driving, not carrying driving licence and driving an uninsured vehicle. This is the second time, the actor got caught for the drunk driving by the Chennai police.
After witnessing the accident that happened at Adyar flyover, onlookers informed the Adyar traffic police about this instance. Even though no one was injured, the vehicle of the actor was damaged heavily. At the time of accident, Jai was not carrying his driving license, vehicle insurance and RC book. The accident took place at around 2 am, when the actor was returning from a party hosted by his friends.
Jai was booked under IPC sections 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way), 185 (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs), 181 (not carrying driving licence) and 196 (driving an uninsured vehicle) of The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. He was later released on bail. However, Chennai police do not want to let go this incident and have now decided to ask transport department to cancel Jai’s driving license because of his frequent violations.
