“They both partially came out of the rear window when the car was moving at a high speed in traffic on the Noida Greater-Noida Expressway,” it said.

“The video was recorded by another car driver, who was following their vehicle. As the video went viral, the traffic police were alerted to stop the car at the next checking point,” the Noida Traffic Police in a statement.

Rahul Dixit, sub-inspector, Integrated Security and Traffic Management System (ISTMS), said, “We received the stunt video on Thursday around 8.51 pm.”

“As the registration number of the car was not visible on the circulated video, we identified the car number with the help of an ISTMS camera and issued an e-challan of 24,500. The car carries Delhi’s registration number,” the officer added.

The traffic police has booked the vehicle owner for violation of traffic rules, dangerous driving, disobedience of any direction lawful given by authority, and failure to use safety belt while driving.
