Cricketer drives car onto a Rail platform

Mumbai: A cricketer allegedly drove his car onto the platform of a suburban railway station during the rush hour on Monday morning leading to chaos at the premises, police said.

Ranji cricket player Harmeet Singh, and a former under-19 cricket team player, drove his four-wheeler directly onto Platform No. 1 of one of the busiest suburban stations at around 7.20 am, a Railway Protection Force (RPF) official said.

Harmeet is also into real estate business.

The car was immediately confiscated by RPF officials. Singh was taken into custody and he was being quizzed, he said. The incident caused chaos at the Andheri railway station as daily commuters were rushing to catch the local trains to their offices.

He has been booked under the railway act. The police are trying to establish if he was drunk. A bat was found on him.
