The video of a minor boy, who was caught by the police in Mahabubnagar district while driving an electric scooter on the main road without a helmet and mask, is now doing rounds on social media.
The cops, when pulled over the two kids, found the kid riding the scooter did not have a driving license or a registration certificate for the vehicle. Answering back to the police very confidently, the boy said there is no need for a license or a registration number for an electric scooter.
He also claimed that he has a green card to prove the same and the cops cannot issue a challan on his scooter. According to police, the boy was counseled in the presence of his parents and the bike was returned back to the owner.
