Abhishek's Bentley on slippery road

February 07, 2007 23:08 IST

The super-expensive Bentley car imported by Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh apparently as a gift for Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan on his birthday appears to have run into objections by the Delhi Transport Department.

Amar Singh had imported the car to Delhi to be taken to Mumbai and has sought transit registration from Delhi Transport Department.

The department is examining the details provided in the application.

"The car is being registered in the name of Amar Singh who has shown his residential address as 'Jalsa' in Mumbai (which is Amitabh Bachchan's residence), which is apparently not correct," a Delhi transport official said.

"We are looking into the matter and further action will depend on the findings," said Delhi Transport Minister Haroon Yusuf.

However, sources said if the information provided in the documents are found incorrect, the registration of the car will be cancelled and Samajwadi Amar Singh might face criminal proceedings.

Meanwhile, Abhishek's father Amitabh Bachchan told a TV channel that he has not gifted the Bentley car costing a whopping Rs 1.5 crore to his son who turned 31 on Monday.
