Kolkata: The police have claimed that reckless driving on the part of actor Vikram Chatterjee resulted in the major accident which occurred on the wee hours of Saturday. On the basis of the witness’ account, the cops have filed a case against actor Vikram for driving recklessly which led to the death of his co-passenger and model Sonika Singh Chauhan.
Few months ago, Vikram had bought Toyota Corolla Altis. In his leisure time, he used to take his car for long drives. On Saturday morning, that car got involved in a major accident. Vikram narrowly escaped death but unfortunately Sonika passed away.

Vikram was returning from a party with Sonika and was driving his own car (as per witnesses), when suddenly it lost its control and rammed into the divider, climbed onto the adjoining pavement and overturned. Sonika’s ears and nose were continuously bleeding. She suffered heavy injuries to her head. Vikram is still admitted to Ruby with injuries to his head-waist-shoulder.
On the other hand, Vikram’s father claimed that another car came in suddenly and his car’s-lock malfunctioned.
