Police in Bandra, Mumbai have reportedly arrested two men after they allegedly tried to drive into the convoy of Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth.

The incident was reported by India’s Hindustan Times – which said the two men were booked for allegedly abusing on-duty police officers and driving dangerously, arrested and released on bail.

The incident took place at about 1.50am on Monday when Jugnauth’s convoy was moving from the Western Expressway Highway towards Bandra Worli sea link.

“Traffic constable Suraj Mhatre, a beat marshal posted on the north-bound stretch of the road at Mahim Causeway, had stopped traffic for the visiting dignitary’s convoy to pass.”

“It was around this time that two men in a brown Renault car began honking, Mhatre said.”

“Assistant police inspector (API) S Khairnar, who was also on duty, gestured to them that they shouldn’t move. But the driver, identified by the police as Akash Anil Shukla (24), began moving forward, intimidating the officials by honking continuously and trying to enter the route of the foreign dignitary.”

Santosh Ginde (22) was also in the car. Both appeared to be drunk, police said.

The car was intercepted when it tried to move towards the sea link and the two men were eventually detained.

Pravind Jugnauth landed in Mumbai on Sunday as part of a week-long visit to India.
