The video also shows the registration details of the Kia Seltos, obtained from the Parivahan app using the registration number of the SUV. It’s believed that the driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident, as they hit a couple of other vehicles before fleeing the scene.
The incident has been shared by the Instagram page of xbhp, which claims that the police have started an investigation into the matter. After an FIR was lodged, the police discovered that the car was registered with a fake address, and the SUV owner doesn’t live at the given address. The police are continuing the investigation and are searching for the Seltos driver.

Prior to this, in another video, the Scorpio driver was seen conversing with another rider in the motorcycle group, and the conversation included the use of expletives. However, it is unclear what initiated the argument on the road.
As the group was riding, the Mahindra Scorpio suddenly sped past them. During the overtake, the Scorpio’s rear bumper collided with a Royal Enfield motorcycle, causing the rider to fall on the road. Fortunately, the rider was wearing protective gear and sustained only minor injuries.
