A 17-year-old boy allegedly drove a BMW car without a license on busy streets in Kalyan with a man lying on its bonnet, prompting the police to register a case after videos of the stunt went viral. The matter came to light amid massive outrage over a Pune Porsche car crash in which a teen crashed his luxury car into a bike killing two IT professionals.

As soon as the video posted on X went viral, police arrested the man lying on the car bonnet, identified as Subham Mithila, and booked the 17-year-old who was at the wheel and his father, a retired government official who owns the car.

According to police, the teenager drove the car on Saturday in the busy Shivaji Chowk area in Kalyan city in Thane district.

Senior police inspector Suresh Gund said, "The teenager was inspired by social media reels and made his father buy the second-hand BMW car for Rs 5 lakh, and drove it on the street without a driving license." 

The owner of the car has been served with a notice, he said.

Pune Porsche car crash 

On May 19, a speeding Porsche car allegedly driven by a minor boy in Pune in the early hours in the Kalyani Nagar area crashed into a motorcycle killing two young IT professionals. The police claimed the teenager was drunk at the time of the accident. The matter created a huge public outrage compelling prompt action and the arrest of the accused. But, the accused got bail within hours of the accident drawing sharp reactions from the public. As the issue snowballed, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and his Deputy Devendra Fadnavis stepped in and asked the police to investigate the matter fairly.
