Young Man Who Wanted a Jaguar Pushes Brand New BMW Into River

A young man in India has pushed his brand-new BMW into a river in an apparent protest against his parents' refusal to buy him a Jaguar for his birthday.

Akash pushed the new vehicle into a river and dramatic footage shot on Friday shows the white BMW drifting down the river in Haryana, Northern India.

He enlisted the help of some local divers who worked to pull the auto back to dry land.

But he was unhappy with the auto, say local police, because it was too small for him and his mates. The BMW eventually got stuck on a patch of grass in the middle of the river, causing Akash to jump into the water to go after it. Police also said the parents claim the man has an undisclosed mental issue.

The BMW costs around 3.5 million rupees ($49,000) in India, while the Jaguars are considerably higher priced.

The police said that there is no criminal case to pursue.


According to Fox News, the boy's father said: "I wanted to give my son a birthday present".

"We could only afford to give him a BMW, while he kept on insisting that he be given a Jaguar".

He dad said: "We have two cars, a BMW and a Swift".

"We never imagined he would do anything like this". The vehicle was driven to the edge of the bank, and then pushed the rest of the way.

A Jaguar auto takes part in a driving display at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed at Goodwood in Chichester, United Kingdom, on July 12, 2018.
