Indore: A young man’s joyride in a high-end Porsche Boxster convertible car amid the coronavirus lockdown in Indore did not end well. The 20-year-old driver had been cruising in the yellow two-seater car on the open roads, which are free of traffic due to the lockdown, when some members of the city’s security council spotted him. The city security council has retired personnel from the Army, paramilitary and the police as volunteers who are attached with police stations across Indore.
The council members flagged down the car and asked the driver why he was out on the road amid the lockdown. The man is seen without a mask amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In a mobile phone video, the driver, who has been identified as the son of Indore businessman Deepak Daryani, is seen getting out of the car, vehicle papers in his hands, and speaking with the council members.
Then 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 person.
The young man’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, Mr Daryani, is the owner of Asha Confectionery in Indore. Sources said he has filed a complaint with the police against the civilians for enforcing traffic law and punishing his son.
