In the video uploaded by the netizen @DebuBhusawal, two men are seen arriving in a silver-coloured BMW 3-Series and stopping their car under a flyover on Wardha Road, Nagpur. After stopping the car, the men are seen coming out and picking up a few flower pots kept on the divider between the roads under the flyover. The men are then seen putting those flower pots in the boot compartment of the BMW car and escaping the spot. One of the men caught stealing the flower pots is seen wearing a hat.
Nagpur is hosting a C20 inception conference, which is a G20 Summit event, from March 20th to March 23rd. For this, several arrangements have been made in the entire city, including the beautification of infrastructure. The placement of flower pots in various parts of the city is a part of the arrangements made in the city. Such an incident of people stealing flower pots, and also for someone who drives an expensive car like a BMW 3-Series, is shameful, to say the least.
