[Watch] Minor Drives Father’s BMW On Busy Road With Youth Perched On Bonnet

New Delhi:  Close on the heels of the ongoing controversy revolving around the Pune Porsche crash that claimed the lives of two IT engineers, the Kalyan police took swift action after a viral video showed a youngster performing stunts on the bonnet of a moving BMW-driven allegedly by a 17-year-old.

In the case of the Pune car crash, the Porsche was not registered with the RTO and was driven by a 17-year-old.

According to a report in the Times of India, the 21-year-old on the bonnet, identified as Subham Mitalia, was arrested immediately, while the teenager and his father, a retired government official, have been booked. The incident came to light on Saturday afternoon.

The viral video that has surfaced on social media captures the young man lying on the bonnet as the teen, without a driving license, manoeuvres the BMW around the busy Shivaji Chowk locality in Kalyan West. Passers-by watched the risky stunt, with some recording it on their phones. The father of the minor was booked for allowing his underage son to drive and has been served a notice by the police.

According to the police, the teenager was inspired by social media reels and persuaded his father to buy the second-hand BMW, which cost around Rs 5 lakh. The car is registered in the father’s name. Senior Inspector Suresh Gaud of Bazarpeth police station stated that as soon as the video went viral, they quickly tracked down the car, the youth on the bonnet and the minor driver.
