A youth in Haryana received a BMW sedan as a gift from parents. The youth wanted a Jaguar instead and in a fit of anger, he drove the vehicle into a river and made a video of it. The video is currently going viral on social media.
The exact model of the BMW sedan is not known, however, it seems like a 3-Series or a 5-Series. Both the vehicles are quite expensive and are priced more than Rs 50 lakhs. The youth from Yamuna Nagar received the car as a gift from the parents. However, the occasion for the gift remains unknown. Since it is raining a lot nowadays, the river was extremely swollen and the vehicle was swept away due to the flow.
The youth reportedly pushed the car in the river and also made a video of it. He uploaded the video on social media websites to show his anger. However, after the vehicle got stuck on a patch of tall grass on a natural island in the middle of the river, the youth took the help of the locals and tried recovering the vehicle. The video of the same has been uploaded on the Internet too.
The exact identity of the youth is not known and the police are yet to reveal the details. However, the youth belongs from Yamuna Nagar in Haryana according to the reports. The cops have also taken the youth into custody but it is not known if he has been arrested yet. Also, it is not known which sections will be imposed on the youth if he gets arrested. The father is a landlord in Haryana but the exact identification could not be established. It is also not known if the car was recovered by the administration.
The age of the youth also remains unknown but it seems like he is quite young and did the whole thing to show his protest. Luxury cars like BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz have become a common sight in many interior parts of Haryana. Landlords and farmers receive a huge sum from the government on selling the lands for the infrastructure development plans like making new roads. Many families just get such luxury cars with the money. In some cases in the past, such vehicles have been found abandoned as the maintenance cost is quite high and people do not take that into consideration while buying the vehicle.
The names of the luxury car brands like Audi, Jaguar, BMW are used very often in the local songs and Punjabi songs that further influence the youths to own and drive such vehicles.
