Exotic cars are a regular sight in Indian Metros. But for some bigwigs, it’s just a toy that can be abandoned. In New Delhi, someone decided to take a Lamborghini for a joy ride near India Gate and deserted the exotic car after crashing into the road divider on Wednesday night. A police officer on duty, who was witness to the accident, registered a complaint against the absconding driver/owner, charging him with section 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Tilak Marg police station.

On further investigation, the car reportedly does not have a registration number; making it difficult for the police officials to zero in on the owner/driver.
