March 30, 2005 01:23 IST
The Mumbai police on Tuesday booked Ravindra Mhatre, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's personal assistant, under various sections of the Motor Vehicles Act for allegedly driving under the influence of liquor.
The police also charged him under the Mumbai Prohibition Act.
He was earlier booked under the Indian Penal Code for causing death by negligence of two women and rash driving.
The test results of Mhatre's blood sample said he was driving under the influence of alcohol.
Mhatre was arrested on March 27 in connection with the death of two women after his car hit them at suburban Vile Parle. He was later released by a local court on bail on a surety of Rs 20,000.
Mhatre, who was also injured in the mishap, is being treated at a city hospital.
