Yamunanagar: A young man from Haryana pushed a two-month-old BMW car into a canal after pestering his parents for a new Jaguar or Ferrari. At first sight, believing this to be an accident, onlookers rushed to rescue the car from the canal where the current was quite strong. To their surprise, the youth approached them and asked them not to worry for he had deliberately pushed his BMW into the waters! He told the crowd there was no one inside the car.
The police called a diver and got the car pulled out of the canal late in the evening.
Akash, a resident of Mukarampur, was gifted a BMW on 12 June for Rs 45 lakh. He was adamant on selling it to buy a Jaguar worth Rs 1 crore or at least an Rs 80 lakh-worth Ferrari, but his father did not yield. So the brat took the BMW car to the canal, stood out and then activated the drive with its remote-control device, which made it plunge into the waters.
The youth further made a video of the car getting submerged in the canal and shared it with the family. Akash’s cousin Lalit said that he had left the house in the morning without saying anything. After some time, it was reported that he was near the canal. Lalit said Akash was fond of expensive cars. On 12 June, his father had bought him the BMW by selling a Fortuner, which costs in the range of Rs 27.58 – Rs 33.28 lakh in Haryana.
