A video of a man who was seen driving his Porsche 718 Boxster in Indore during lockdown has gone viral. The video shows Indore police stopping the driver at a check post and making the driver step out of the car, hold his ears and performs squats repeatedly. ANI reports that the driver was flagged down Indore’s security committee personnel yesterday while he was driving his Porsche amid lockdown.
However, ANI reports the driver later claimed that the incident occurred when he was returning home from work when he was stopped. He alleges that he displayed his pass to the authorities who have flagged him down, but they allegedly abused him and asked him to perform squats. The driver claims that he tried to reason with them, but the personnel did not listen and then asked him to leave.
