1 killed, 10 injured as Porsche driven by drunk student ploughs through autorickshaws in Chennai
CHENNAI: A 30-year-old man died and ten others suffered injuries when a Porsche car hit the median on the Dr Radhakrishnan Salai in Chennai and ploughed through autorickshaws parked on the roadside in the early hours of Monday.
Police said V Vikas, a student and a resident of T Nagar, and his friend Charan Kumar were returning home after attending a party thrown by Tuti Patriot, who won the Tamil Nadu Premier League final held at Chepauk on Sunday night. The duo escaped unhurt as the airbags were deployed when the car hit the median at a high speed.
Vikas, who is the son of Supreme Court lawyer Vijay Anand, was driving the car. Vikas and Charan were drunk, police said.
After hitting the median, the car ploughed through autorickshaws parked on the roadside, injuring people who were sleeping in the autos. Auto drivers Arumugam and Varadhan suffered serious injuries and were admitted to Rajiv Gandhi Government Medical College Hospital, where the former succumbed to his injuries. Arumugam was a native of Tiruttani.
Other injured people were sent to Government Royapetah Hospital.
The Adyar traffic investigation wing police registered a case and detained Vikas and Charan.
Now the great hush up will start.
I admire the values of this so called Judge – He has surely taught is son how not to obey the law… Money and Legal support an now Father will pull in political support as well and ensure the 2 scum of society are free to crawl back under the carpets un-noticed and create further problems.
Money speaks louder than law

Nothing will happen…..Also, most likely Juvenile law will come to the rescue.
Let us see the judgement games and twists. Incredible india
nothing will happen,we have salman roaming free.judiciary &police dept are most corrupt &are puppet of rich people
Vikas, who is the son of Supreme Court lawyer Vijay Anand, was driving the car. Vikas and Charan were NOT drunk, Lawyer Vijay Anand will prove it
How can a supreme court lawyer afford a porsche? we are really a banana republic!
Nobody will be prosecuted.
So what. Father of Vikas will prove in the court that his son was neither drunk nor driving the car. It was the victim who committed sucide and rickshaws had no business to be there. And the Law will take its o2n
