A few months ago, two women in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, were issued a hefty challan for Rs 11,000 for performing stunts on a Bullet on the public roads. One of these girls, who goes by the name Bullet Rani and frequently records herself stunting on public roads, has now been detained by the Ghaziabad Police. When an accident occurred, she slapped the officers.
The information stated that Shivangi Dabas, also known as Bullet Rani, was in a vehicle being driven by someone else. Sepoy Jyoti Sharma and Seema, who were riding a scooter and coming home from duty, were struck by her car. After the collision, the injured police officers warned the car driver to drive carefully.
Shivangi Dabas, however, was furious following the incident. She began cursing at the officers and claimed they had no idea who she was. Shivangi lost her cool and began slapping the police officer when Jyoti questioned her about why the car was being driven in this manner.
On the scooter, the two police officers fled the scene. The police station was informed by Seema and the other officers. The station sent a police force to deal with the matter. Shivangi Dabas’ friends claimed that the police had assaulted them by keeping them as illegal customers.
Based on video evidence, the police have opened a case and begun an investigation. Unknown are the laws under which Shivangi was taken into custody by the police.
Stunting on public roads
Stunts are prohibited on public roads for a number of valid reasons. Stunts can distract drivers and result in accidents. Additionally, the stunt could fail and there could be serious traffic mishaps. Finding a vacant area where you can practise stunts while using the appropriate safety equipment and precautions is always a good idea.
Children should always seek the advice of experts and can even enrol in a school or academy for safe stunt and racing techniques. Public roads can be unpredictable and are sometimes the scene of fatal collisions.
The best way to practice stunting is to find an isolated place with an expert who can guide you or you can join schools that teach such things. It is always advised that one should start stunting with all the protective gears in place.
Since there is a high risk of falling down from the motorcycles if anything goes wrong, it is always better to wear protective clothing, especially a helmet, riding boots, knee guards, elbow guards and gloves. These basic items will save you from a lot of injuries, especially during the slow speed falls during stunting.
The cops are now using viral videos to issue challans. This is not the first such incident in Ghaziabad where the offenders were tracked using video footage. In the past, numerous challans based on video evidences have been handed out.
Doing any kind of stunts on public roads is illegal and the violators can even go to jail along with paying massive fines. Doing stunts on public roads can land you in a spot due to various reasons. If anyone wants to practice stunting or want to record videos, it should be done on private property such as race tracks and even farmhouses. Also, one should take note that such stunts are extremely dangerous.
