A Delhi court on Thursday granted bail to Asees Singh Chadha, who was arrested after his speeding Bentley rammed into an autorickshaw killing a foreign national and leaving three persons injured in Lutyen's Delhi.

Additional Sessions Judge Sudesh Kumar granted relief to Chadha on furnishing a bail bond of Rs 2 lakh and two sureties of the like amount. 

A speeding luxury car today rammed into an auto-rickshaw at Luteyn Delhi's Vinay Marg, killing a foreign national. The car was being driven by 19-year-old Ashis Singh Chadha, a relative of business tycoon Ponty Chadha. 

The incident took place around 1.32 pm when a speeding luxury car rammed into an auto-rickshaw at Luteyn Delhi's Vinay Marg, killing a foreign national. The car was being driven by 19-year-old Ashis Singh Chadha, a relative of business tycoon Ponty Chadha. 

Ashis was caught by locals after the accident and was handed over to police.
