Panaji: A tourist from Delhi was caught on camera recklessly driving an SUV on Goa’s popular Anjuna beach, leading the police to file a case against him on Thursday, an official said.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Jivba Dalvi told PTI that Lalit Kumar Dayal, a resident of Delhi’s Mangolpuri area, was booked for driving the SUV, which he had rented from a local resident, on the Anjuna beach thereby endangering the lives of tourists and other citizens.
A video of the car being driven rashly on the beach and later getting stuck in the sand had appeared on social media.

The police have also submitted a report against the car owner, Sangeeta Gavadalkar, a resident of Mapusa town in North Goa, for giving her private vehicle on rent to the accused.
