Elections in India bring in all kinds of emotions on the road, including open clashes. Recently, the 2018 Student Election concluded in the Churu district in Rajasthan and on the counting day, the situation got out of hand. Reports of clashes between student bodies and the local police came in and quite a few videos became viral on the internet. Here is one such viral video that shows a Mahindra Scorpio going berserk.
What is happening here?
The video shows a white old-generation Mahindra Scorpio emerging in reverse from a sea of people and speeding towards two cops. The local cops first tried to stop the SUV, but after realising that the vehicle has no intention to stop, they try to get out of the way. The video shows the Scorpio almost hitting one of the cops. It is not clear if the police person escaped unhurt, but all the comments suggest that the vehicle has hit the cop.
The video further shows that the Scorpio is doing some extreme and dangerous manoeuvres to escape from the cops on the spot and had almost hit a police Mahindra Thar in the process. It is not clear why the person was trying to get away from the spot or why the cops are targeting him. The cops start to run behind the Scorpio that escaped from the spot and an official police Mahindra Thar stops to allow a few cops to get in the vehicle. A few moments later, an official police Mahindra Bolero reaches the spot and both the vehicle speed away together in pursuit of the Mahindra Scorpio. While a few reports say that the driver of the Scorpio has been apprehended, none of the reports confirms the same.
Both Mahindra Thar and Mahindra Bolero are official police vehicles. However, both are lower-powered than the Mahindra Scorpio and the car chase would have been a big task. There are not many police car chases in India that can be termed as dramatic, but this looks up to the par. The Mahindra Scorpio is also a very popular vehicle, especially among the politicians, as the vehicle offers an intimidating look and a rugged body.
