According to NDTV, a video of the men shows loud music playing in the background and an Instagram live stream in which they show their journey to their audience. Later, the video shows that the car was going at a speed of 160 kmph. The issue starts when one of the men says, "Look how the car is going," and the camera pans to the SUV's instrument cluster while the speedometer shows 160 kmph. A series of insults that could be directed at the driver of one of the cars on the road come next. The driver of the SUV then begins to rush the car through traffic, passing other vehicles and exceeding the speed limit. The clip also presents his friends encouraging him by saying, "Yeah, one more." (Also Read: Woman allegedly gets husband killed in UP over him wanting to gift gold ring, TV to sister)
