New Delhi. In the thrill of getting extra likes and views on the Internet, users often go the way of sensationalism and try dangerous actions to get attention. One such incident came to light from Malampuzha in Kerala where some vloggers experimented with some car stunts on the New Mahindra Thar. These exploits came to a sudden halt on YouTube when vloggers were threatened with legal action.
The incident, which took place at a dam site in Malampuzha in April 2021, shows some vloggers attempting to show off their stunting abilities. On the other hand, the man driving the Mahindra Thar deliberately overturned the SUV while turning. Other vloggers present at the scene recorded it on their cameras while hanging dangerously from the vehicles. The footage of the incident was later circulated on social media, where it came to the notice of law enforcement agencies.

Preliminary reports of the investigation into the incident suggest that the vlogger who overturned the Thar was driving at a very high speed and the dam site where the video was recorded was on the list of restricted areas. Several law enforcement agencies like Kerala Police, Kerala RTO and Water Resources Department are investigating the matter. Meanwhile, the RTO has already imposed a fine of Rs 10,500 by identifying the vlogger for dangerous driving and modifying the vehicle without permission.

The Kerala RTO has also started a detailed investigation after receiving a complaint from the Water Resources Department. However, this is not the first such incident that has come to the fore. This trend of performing stunts on open roads and places has gained a lot of popularity recently and the internet is full of such videos.
Similarly, a biker’s license was suspended in Kerala after the RTO saw a video of a reckless driving on Instagram. In the video that was posted on Instagram account The Green Punk46, a group of bike riders can be seen on a road in Kerala. While other bikers were following the lane rules, one of them was seen performing risky stunts.
