NRI Mandeep Singh Kohli, 29, a millionaire company director has been jailed for 22 months and banned from driving for three years because he lied to police to evade 36 speeding tickets.

He gave police officers the names of people living abroad when cars registered to his family firm, including a Porsche and a Ferrari, were caught by speed cameras.

Kohli pleaded guilty to 12 charges of perverting the course of justice and asked for 24 similar offences to be taken into consideration, according to a report in the Birmingham Post.

He also admitted two counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception, relating to two insurance claims following accidents involving his firm's delivery drivers.

Kohli, a former investment banking student, was also helping to run part of the Shimla Pinks Indian restaurant chain when the offences were committed between October 2002 and January 2005, the court heard, and has since resigned as a director of Coventry-based import-export company Stonegalleon.
