In a shocking news, India batting star Ajinkya Rahane’s father, Madhukar Baburao Rahane, was arrested on Friday (December 15) for driving into a woman with his car. Rahane senior was driving his four-wheeler in Kolhapur when he hit a woman who succumbed to her injuries at a hospital.
According to local media reports, the player’s father was arrested and interrogated by the Kolhapur police. As per reports, the Rahane family was traveling in a Hyundai I20 which was being driven by Madhukar on National Highway No.4 before he lost control of the car in the Kangal area and accidentally ran over the deceased named Ashatai Kamble.
The site of the accident was soon mobbed by the locals who took the woman to a nearby government hospital and Madhukar to the police station. The victim was declared brought dead by the hospital.
The police has reportedly registered a case under the IPC Act 304A, 337, 338, 279 and 184 against Rahane senior.
Meanwhile, the India Test team vice-captain is currently with the national team for the ongoing One-Day International series against Sri Lanka. The right-handed batsman is having a tough time on the field too, having fared poorly in the last Test series against Sri Lanka. In a series where all of India’s top-order batsmen managed to score heavily, Rahane managed to score just 17 runs in three Tests. With a series against South Africa not very far away, the 29-year old will be desperate to return to form.
