What’s the truth?

When we took the keyframes of the video and reverse image searched it, we were able to find out that the incident is from 2018. The video is also not from Karnataka as claimed in social media. The video is from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The video was posted on YouTube back in September 2018.

Many news outlets such as The Sun, The Daily Mail, India Times have covered the incident in 2018.

Moreover, a closer look at the cars in the video would reveal that they are not from India, as there are Urdu/Arabic letters in the numberplate and the registration numbering system is different from what is followed in India.
