She had requested them to let her get dropped to the house, they have obliged,” he added.”I spoke to the Transport Commissioner and asked him not to trouble us unnecessarily. He explained that there are many cars running with a single registration number in the city and they are keeping tabs on that. He had asked us to produce valid documents and get the car released. I will do so,” Babu explained.Transport department Additional Commissioner Narendra Holkar informed that the Rolls-Royce car was seized for not having proper documents. The owner then produced a letter signed by Amitabh Bachchan which proved that the vehicle was sold to him.On an interesting note, the person driving the luxury car at the time of its seizure was a driver named Salman Khan (not related to the popular ‘Race 3’ actor).Other cars seized amid the Karnataka Transport department’s drive include Rolls Royce Phantom, Land Rover, Range Rover, Evoque, Jaguar XJ-L, Ferrari, Audi R8 and Porsche.
