Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan was arrested after a teenaged boy was hit and injured by a sports utility vehicle driven by him Friday evening in suburban Andheri, Mumbai, police said.

The actor, who was later released on bail of Rs 5,000 at the DN Nagar police station, had rushed the 13-year-old boy, Shakil Sheikh, to a private hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and discharged this morning.

The boy was attempting to cross the road when he was hit by the Land Cruiser, driven by Saif near the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan's college at around 6 pm, police said adding Shakil received minor injuries as the vehicle was at a slow speed.

After the accident, Saif informed the D N Nagar police station. Since Saif himself was driving the vehicle, he was made to undergo a medical examination to find out alcohol content

in his blood, police said, adding that the report showed that

there was no alcohol in the blood.

The actor was granted bail at around 1.30 am and he was asked to visit the police station in the morning to complete formalities.

But when the actor did not turn up, police moved the Andheri court and informed that the actor had not completed formalities regarding the bail.

The court adjourned the hearing of the case till December 12. Meanwhile, Saif visited the police station at 4 pm, police added.

Saif later said that he was not aware of the entire legal process and that he would take care of all the medical requirements of the boy.
