On a new generation Mahindra Thar soft-top, a video of kids performing tricks is going viral online. The Gaddopur Pethia of the Tajpur police station in Jharkhand is where the video is from. When the accident occurred, the kids reportedly tried to imitate scenes from Bhojpuri songs.
The Mahindra Thar soft-top is seen in the video loaded with young people. In an open park, the driver starts making rapid tight turns. The Thar flips over on its side as the speed picks up, throwing the kids out of the vehicle. More than six children in the car suffered serious injuries in the collision and were taken to the hospital.
The Thar is not covered by a roof. The kids took off the roof because it was a soft-top model. In such circumstances, an SUV rollover can be extremely dangerous and could result in the car’s occupants being crushed. If you’ve noticed, the Mahindra Thar has a roll cage that ensures the occupants’ safety in such situations. However, the roll cage is only effective if the passengers are wearing seatbelts. They risk falling out without the belt, as seen in the video, and being run over by the car.
On August 15, the day they were commemorating India’s 75th Independence Day, the accident took place.
But according to reports, the teenagers in the SUV were all intoxicated and having a party there prior to the incident. The police have begun looking into the situation after the video went viral on social media.
Although the police have not yet made an official statement regarding the development, we might see action taken against these kids in the upcoming week.
It is now commonplace across the nation for people to attempt stunts and fail, injuring themselves—and occasionally fatally—in the process. Young confidence, an excess of enthusiasm, and a lack of experience all appear to be the main causes of these behaviours. Around the world, young people are much more likely than older generations to be involved in accidents. India is also no different. We have witnessed risky wheelies, stoppies, and traffic swerving while riding two wheels so frequently that we have grown numb to them.
The police have begun their inquiries because the video has gone viral online. India as a whole now sees a lot of this. On the basis of viral videos, the police have previously issued challans to two girls performing stunts on Royal Enfield motorcycles and to youths performing stunts on Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
Stunts of any kind are prohibited on public roads, and violators risk imprisonment in addition to steep fines. Stunts on public roads can get you into trouble for a variety of reasons. Stunting exercises and video recording should only be done on privately owned property, such as racetracks and even farms. Additionally, one must keep in mind that such stunts are extremely dangerous.
The video features extremely risky stunts. None of them are donning any safety gear, such as a helmet, or protective clothing, such as knee or elbow pads. In such stunts, anything can go wrong. Imagine simply stepping off the bonnet while the car is still moving. It might result in catastrophe.
