Spotted these in Bombay today. Indian Police Cars-1487162086880.jpgIndian Police Cars-1487162100216.jpg

Part of Mukesh Ambani's security detail. I wonder if they are state owned or Reliance owned. Also saw the S Guard.

Ging by the Registration plates, they dont look like Government vehicles - Govt vehicles are typically with the series G, GA ... (the one in the photo is BU).

I would think these are Reliance cars put into service of their Big Boss - would be too embarrassing to have a beat up car piloting a Rolls.

Why are the BMW badges removed from the bonnet and wheels?

Maybe stolen?

If it is indeed so, what an irony!

Exactly my thoughts, maybe they don't want to come into limelight. It can be a perfect front page news so they want to keep hush-hush

Brand new 3.2L Endeavours and Fortuners too have joined the security fleet alongside the BMW X3s. As far as I remember, those cars had the brand badges on them. Probably this is an exception?

Nice catch there, a car which can keep on tail of almost any car they have. 30d after all!! OT but your pics have certainly gone viral on the net with almost all the news sites having those in it

Wow. I like how they don't even credit Teambhp on most of these blogs. And they made it sound as if they investigated the ownership. Appalling standards of journalism. But then again, Meh
