A 20 year old driver decided to take his convertible sports car out for a spin in India amidst the coronavirus lockdown and it did not end well. The youngster took advantage of reduced traffic in Indore and cruised in his yellow two-seater Porsche on the open roads, before members of the city’s security council spotted him.
The city security council is a law enforcing entity that comprises of retired personnel from the Army, paramilitary and the police as volunteers working with the local police across Indore.
The security personnel flagged down the car and asked the driver why he was out on the road amidst the lockdown
The driver has been identified as the son of Indore businessman Deepak Daryani.
In the video, the man is seen without a mask as a council member in a black uniform holding a stick orders the driver to do sit-ups.
He is seen holding his ears as he obeys the security official.
The youngster’s family said he has a curfew pass and driving license, but the city security council officials allegedly misbehaved with him.
The driver’s father, Daryani, is the owner of a confectionery business in Indore. He has reportedly filed a complaint with the police against the civilians for enforcing traffic law and punishing his son.
The clip was shared online and netizens thought that the punishment was appropriate.
The 21-day nationwide coronavirus lockdown was extended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 14. The lockdown will come to end on May 3.
