I have a feeling, that, even if the injured party dosen't wan't to press charges, our most efficient police force sees to it that a case is lodged. I'm sure, lots of members will agree with me.

They are not injured, its john who got injured while trying to save them.

So now for saving them he has to be arrested?!
Only in India. On one hand this happens, on the other hand some Nanda kid ran down 3 or 4 pedestrians some years back in a BMW or something and was let off.

Let alone that that kid virtually got away with murder; did anyone question how Mr. Nanda happened to own such an expensive car? Soruce of Income/Funds?

The law can cut both ways. Being rich and famous can either get you off (even if you kill someone) or get you into big trouble for a relatively minor offence.

One of the big reasons could be that the police are out to capitalise on the incident to proove to the public that they at least make an effort to ensure that the rich and famous are treated equally under the law.

Admiral SM Nanda's grandson. Must have been a rather crooked member of the Indian Navy. If I remember, his name was always bandied about during defence deals of dubious provenance.

Thing is, JA is not really influential. Just slightly famous, a lower-rung actor. He's no politician/IAS/IPS/forces bigshot. Soft target for the (bloody) cops.

Just like to add:

It must suck to be JA. Do the right thing, ruin your bloody expensive bike to save a couple of idiots coming down the wrong way on a street that the city didn't care to light properly. Take them to hospital on your own, being injured all the while. Then get lambasted in our rent-a-paper media by a bunch of idiots who are out to make up stories, and to top it off, get arrested.

And now someone will say "so what, he can afford another bike." But from what I know, he seems to be a real biker, not Salman Khan. He saved up to buy an export spec Bullet when he wasn't very rich.

On the other hand, I'm very happy Salman Khan is going to jail. I hope he gets a 'hero's welcome' from the inmates. Stupid little chimpanzee.

Sorry for cluttering this thread, but I just saw sinner's post...how do you claim any superbike to be the world's fastest? And why doesn't someone who takes the trouble to rubber-print a t-shirt get his or her grammar right?

IF your vehicle, be it a car or a bike has DRL's, a MILLION people will yell at you on the street.. "boss light chalu hai" or things of that nature.
To avoid this the "importers" put a killswitch on the handlebar to turn the DRL's off..
Aaah.... I see, I now remember signalling others for running lights. But, that was a decade ago. I guess thats the same reasoning followed by american and japanese car makers in india.

On second thought, the hundreds of people walking on the side of the roads in busy areas, probably can live without powerful headlamps (Xenon types) glaring right into their eyes.

Unlike JA, who came across as a mature guy for his age, SK was more like on a perpetual adrenalin high. Today's paper has it that he has a murder convict for company in his cell, got the regular jail breakfast (roasted gram & raw sugar) and odomos to keep the mosquitos away.
BTW, what happened to that DUI offense of his where his SUV killed people sleeping on the pavement - no news of that for a long time ?

About navins post I totally agree with him. JA is a perfect gentleman and humble chap. he has no attitude at all. I remember the time he had come to shoot for a movie "Taxi 9211" in my building. He obliged each and everyone of the little kids, ladies and fans out there. Picked up babies played with residents dogs and even took everyone inside his make up van that includes my mom and cousin sister whos a die hard fan. It really pisses me off to see why hes being made a scapegoat.

P.S : Why is this topic shifting to Salman? Lets get back to the JA accident please

Err the last I knew R1 was the fastest litre bike(correct me if am wrong). Busa, 12R & MV Augusta do not come under superbike category. What grammer mistake ?

Sorry for goin OT mods :|

If I am right, the grammar mistake is the missing "the" in the sentence,
"You are following ___ world's fastest superbike!"
