In a special drive, transport officials in Bengaluru impounded seven luxury cars, including a Rolls Royce, for allegedly running without documents or insurance, evading tax, and other offences.

Officials seized seven cars, including a Rolls Royce registered in Maharashtra. The vehicle was registered in the name of Amitabh Bachchan in 2019, but was later allegedly purchased by a builder from Bengaluru. During our drive, a person named Salman Khan was driving the car. He failed to produce documents related to the car. The car was also plying without insurance. We have impounded the car as per the rules.”
