The video of a Block Development Officer (BDO) in Uttar Pradesh driving his car for almost 4 km with a youth clinging on to the bonnet surfaced on the internet.
Similarly, an Ola cab driver drove for 500 meters with a male passenger on the cab’s bonnet at the Delhi airport.
Reportedly, in the UP case, the youth hopped onto the bonnet in his bid to stop the BDO from leaving, after a group of villagers visited him demanding installments for the construction of toilets.
In the Delhi Ola cab’s case, the man is said to have hopped on to the bonnet of the cab after the driver canceled the ride following an argument between the two over putting luggage in the car’s boot.
The passenger later fell off the vehicle and sustained injuries, police said.
