A 71-year-old man was reportedly dragged for nearly 1 kilometer on road by a scooter-borne youth in Karnataka’s capital city of Bengaluru on Tuesday. The 25-year-old scooter rider – identified as Sahil – had hit the elderly man’s SUV from behind, as per news agency ANI, and as the elderly man exited his car to question Sahil, he attempted to flee. Muthappa, the car driver, then rushed and grabbed the scooter to ensure that he didn’t escape but was dragged by the scooter-borne man for almost a km on the Magadi Road in the city. The horrific visuals of the incident were captured on camera; a video was shared by ANI
He was arrogant, did not stop after hitting my Bolero from behind, and tried to flee. So I did not want to leave him. He tried his best to escape and wanted me to leave his scooter… he rode the vehicle like a snake. A couple of youngsters followed and tried to attack and stop him. Finally, a couple of auto drivers and bikers managed to stop him and caught hold of him,” Muthappa was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
