In a shocking turn of events, the birthday party of Sachin Tyagi, the son of a prominent marble businessman from Sikandra’s brick market in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, took a dangerous and reckless turn. What was meant to be a joyous celebration turned into a potentially life-threatening situation as five students engaged in stunts on the road, blaring hooters and playing high-pitched music. The incident resulted in the seizure of six cars and subsequent actions taken by the authorities.
According to Inspector Anand Kumar Shahi, in charge of the Sikandra police station, Sachin Tyagi’s friends devised a unique plan to celebrate his birthday. However, their chosen method not only endangered the lives of others but also put Sachin’s own life at risk. The group of friends, consisting of five individuals, occupied six cars, with one of them being a minor.
The group’s lead car, a Scorpio, drove ahead with a blaring hooter, while another car followed closely behind, playing loud music. The occupants of the cars even filmed themselves in the act, posing at the car doors while engaging in the dangerous stunt. The vehicles proceeded towards the Sunari village of Shastripuram, and footage of their reckless behavior was later shared on social media, drawing widespread attention.
Investigation and Actions Taken
Once the video of the car stunt incident went viral, the police launched an investigation into the matter. They successfully apprehended Sachin Tyagi, along with Dheeraj Goswami, a resident of Kailash, Utkarsh, residing in Awas Vikas, Ankit Singh from Pushpanjali Gardenia, Dev Rajput from Lohamandi, and Harendra Tyagi from Paschimpuri.
As a consequence of their dangerous actions, the authorities seized all six cars involved in the stunt. While Sachin Tyagi and the minor were released due to the former’s ongoing B.Com exam and the latter’s status as a minor, the remaining individuals faced further consequences.
Legal Consequences and Penalties
The reckless stunt incident invoked the Motor Vehicles (MV) Act, and actions were taken accordingly. Under Section 184 of the MV Act, the vehicles used during the stunt were seized. Additionally, a mitigation fee of five thousand rupees was imposed.
Furthermore, the act of installing and playing a hooter in a vehicle carries severe penalties. Violators face a fine of Rs 10,000 for using the hooter and a fine of Rs 1,000 for failing to use it as required by law. In the event of any accidents or incidents caused by such reckless behavior, the individuals involved may face legal consequences under the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The reckless stunt incident during Sachin Tyagi’s birthday party in Agra has shed light on the dangers of irresponsible and dangerous behavior on the roads. It serves as a stark reminder of the importance of adhering to traffic rules and regulations to ensure the safety of all individuals. The swift actions taken by the authorities in seizing the cars and imposing penalties highlight the commitment to maintaining order and discouraging such reckless behavior. It is crucial for everyone, especially young individuals, to understand the potential consequences of their actions and to prioritize safety above all else on the roads.
