Default Dragking of Bangalore who raced his way into a jail !!

A drag racer from Bangalore who drove too fast , but this time into Jail

" According to police , Sukesh’s cell phone costs Rs 3.4 lakh and the gang’s one time night-out bill ran up to Rs 70,000. The gang purchased seven top of the line cars, including two imported ones. An expensive flat-screen TV and DVDs were aslo recovered.
The gang cruised around in a Nissan Xtrac vehicle fitted with a red light on top. The gang was into drag racing and Sukesh even carried a fake letter from the police department that read, “He is permitted to drive in full throttle in the city”.

Deccan Herald - College dropout cheats old man of Rs 1.14 cr

and "
Mr. Mukherjee said Sukesh, who was addicted to drag races, had created a fake document by forging the signature of a senior police official.
The document stated that the police should allow him to drive four-wheelers and two-wheelers anywhere in Karnataka until he got his driving licence.
According to sources in the police, Sukesh had forged the signature of the then Bangalore Commissioner Ajai Kumar Singh and created the fake document in April 2006."

That kid was no drag king. Yes, a few members from his gang were into drag racing but that was not the real reason why he got behind the bars. But for cheating a citizen of 1Cr odd by providing fake BDA approval and other documents. Once that racket opened up all this came into the limelight. I guess there is a picture of his Green Mondeo posted in the weird and wacky section.

This new episode and the subsequent involvement of the CM's sons name will mean no more drag racing in Bangalore for years to come . Can I use a million more of these smilies? Pls?

I dunno how many of you realise what the title drag king here could also imply and initially I thought thats what it was all about -- only when I read the post did I realise my thinking was way of target ..

Im sorry but I know how frustrating it can get when the dumb rule makers don't see the real side of a sport and base their judgements on hearsay or by reading stuff like this . I wish they would realsie that its a full fledged sport out there with its rules, safety aspects , etc etc and it aint about 2 mad fools racing down some street at 3 am .

From the Deccan Herald link:

Quote:
“Over a period, Sukesh churned out stories and collected several lakhs from me. I was forced to take the help of police when they started blackmailing me for money,” said Subramanyam.
The old man Subramanyam dished out Rs 1.14 crores to an 18 year-old (Sukesh) over a period of time without so much as a verification of various documents. How can he fail to consult a lawyer to verify the documents produced by Sukesh, which is the bare minimum requirement before he parts with that much money? And a Chartered Accountant should also have been consulted; he would surely have nailed Sukesh if by any chance the lawyer failed to do so. Subbu is one dumb, rich guy.

Though I am not much aware into the details, I think parents might have had no control or knowledge about this. Because I hear he hardly spent time at his house.
