A young man in India, who received a BMW for his 22nd birthday, allegedly pushed it into a river because it wasn’t the Jaguar he had been asking for.
Villagers in Yamunanagar, in the northern state of Haryana, were shocked to see a pricey white BMW 3 Series sinking into the Western Yamuna Canal. One witness called police, who sent a recovery team to make sure nobody was trapped inside.
Police divers borrowed an earthmover and, with the help of locals, recovered the BMW from a patch of tall grass it was moored on. Authorities determined the car belonged to a man named Akash, reportedly the son of a prosperous local landowner.
According to police, Akash deliberately pushed his new car into the canal.
