Man pushes BMW car given to him as a birthday present by his father into river as he wanted a Jaguar
A video taken on the scene shows the car slowly descending into the water before being fully submerged
A spoilt young man from India pushed his brand new BMW car, given to him by his parents as a birthday present, into a river as he wanted a Jaguar. The BMW was reportedly a gift from his parents but was not the car that he wanted.
The 22-year-old man, identified as Akash from the state of Haryana in North India, is alleged to have shoved his car into the Yamuna river after he got extremely upset that the car was not big enough for him and his friends.
A video taken on the scene shows the car slowly descending into the water before being fully submerged. The car had to be retrieved using a crane. The police have launched an investigation into the bizarre case though are dealing with it as a personal, family matter.
According to reports, Akash, a resident from Mukrampur village, allegedly drove his new BMW to the embankment of the river and then let it slip into the water via a slope. The police revealed that they have not registered a case against the young man as they say he was mentally unwell and was undergoing treatment.
According to a police official, Akash's father is a landlord and had bought him the BMW around two months ago. The authorities shared, "Akash was unhappy with his father for not buying him Jaguar. He deliberately pushed luxury vehicle BMW into the river."
The video of the car slipping into the water was circulated on social media and went viral. A crowd of people was seen standing on a bridge watching the car sink into the river. The local administration had to launch an operation to retrieve the car after villagers raised an alarm thinking that someone was trapped inside.
The police revealed that the car was eventually taken out of the water with the help of local divers. A police official further added, "After getting the matter examined, no legal case can be made out of it."
As reported by Fox, the boy's father shared that he had wanted to give his son a birthday present but could afford a BMW and not a Jaguar.
"He said the vehicle was too small but we thought he will be okay. We never imagined he would do anything like this," the father added.
