Union Minister of State for Science and Technology Y S Chowdary's son Karthik has been booked for rash driving by Hyderabad Traffic Police which also seized his Porsche car.

During a special road safety drive conducted on Friday night by traffic cops, Karthik was found driving the vehicle allegedly in a "rash" manner between Jubilee Hills Check Post and KBR Park gate in Hyderabad, Banjara Hills Traffic Police Station Inspector N Vidya Sagar told PTI.

"We caught him along with some other (motorists) during the special drive for different violations," the Inspector said, adding a case was booked on charge of rash driving against Karthik under section 184 (B) of MV Act and the Porsche car was seized.

He has not been arrested. However, fine will be imposed, the police officer said.

Chowdary, a TDP leader, for some time now has been entangled in a loan default case in connection to a company called Sujana Towers, of which he was the former director.

criminal complaint was filed by Mauritius Commercial Bank Ltd over a Rs 106 crore alleged loan default against him and others. However, the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday ordered a recall of the non-bailable warrant which was issued by a local court against him following the bank's complaint.
