New Delhi: Delhi police on Saturday detained four college students, following a complaint lodged by Union Minister Smriti Irani at Chanakyapuri police station. The minister in her complaint alleged that the youth, in a car, chased her and tried overtaking her vehicle.

The incident reportedly occurred at around 5:30 PM. The Union Minister called up PCR before personally going to the police station to file a complaint.

"Their medical examination has confirmed the presence of alcohol in their blood. They were returning from a friend's birthday party in south Delhi and were roaming in the area for fun," police said. Legal action is being taken against the accused youths.

CNN-News18 has learnt that the Santro car used by youth was reportedly involved in an incident near Myanmar Embassy at around 5.20 PM.

Sources in the police told CNN-News18 that students categorically rubbished all the allegations levelled against them by Smriti Irani. "They were returning after attending a birthday party," a source said.

Delhi police, in a tweet, informed that four persons in a car tried to cross Smriti Irani's vehicle when she was crossing Moti Bagh flyover.
