The case with actor Dalip Tahil has resulted in a jail sentence of two months. He injured a woman after ramming his car into an auto rickshaw in 2018.
According to reports, a magistrate’s court sentenced the 70-year-old actor following evidence from medical experts that he had been drunk when the accident occurred. Tahil had refused to give blood samples to the Mumbai Police at the time. However, the police had ordered medical tests for the injured person in that accident. Reporter: Dainik Bhaskar
A Times Now report stated that the doctor detected the smell of alcohol in him and noted his unsteady gait, dilated pupils, and incoherent speech.
In an interview with ANI, Dalip Tahil said he respected the judgment but would challenge it in a higher court. In addition, he claimed that he had suffered only “minor injuries” in the accident.
Dalip further said, “I respect judges and decisions taken in court. We are challenging the entire decision and the entire judgment in the higher court. We prefer to challenge the whole decision. It was a suspended sentence, and most importantly, I would like to say that there were minor injuries in the accident. I did not injure anyone”.
