    A Vietnamese diplomat posted in New Delhi has been booked for reckless driving, a criminal offence in India.

    The Delhi Police has lodged an FIR against a Vietnamese diplomat as per a complaint by 42-year-old Arti Gupta, a resident of Delhi. According to police sources, Gupta alleged that the diplomat was driving in a rash manner and hit her car from behind when she was leaving a parking lot. Her car is partially damaged. 

    The first secretary of the Vietnamese Embassy is the alleged driver. Since, the case is related to a diplomat, Delhi Police will submit its report to the Ministry of External Affairs through the Ministry of Home Affairs.

    Persons convicted for reckless driving under Section 279 of the Indian Penal Code may be sentenced to maximum 6 month prison term or monetary fine.
