Gundlupet: A video making the rounds on social media captures a disturbing road rage incident that unfolded in Karnataka. The chilling footage portrays a family’s car being abruptly halted by a group of men traveling in an SUV along a road in Bandipur. Allegedly, the family faced threats and physical aggression over a seemingly minor matter. Throughout their journey, the family was prevented from overtaking the SUV in any manner.

According to the individual who shared the video on Twitter, the man behind the wheel seized an opportunity to overtake, prompting the SUV to follow and force them to stop in the middle of the road. “Upon exiting the car, they launched into a verbal assault. The man’s wife attempted to defend them and got injured in the process,” the uploader recounted.

Realizing their actions were captured by the car’s dash cam, the men attempted to destroy the evidence. “He wanted to lodge a complaint, but due to the proximity to the Tamil Nadu border, the police were not very cooperative,” the uploader added. The video has quickly gained traction, drawing diverse reactions across social media. Many are urging a thorough investigation into the incident.

A concerned Twitter user wrote, “Can we identify the vehicle number? Let’s help them confront road rage. The number isn’t clear.” Another individual emphasized the significance of dash cams, stating, “A dash cam is more than just a gadget; it serves as a silent eyewitness on the road.”

In a separate but similarly distressing occurrence, another viral video surfaced, depicting a group of men pursuing a moving car in Bengaluru. Shared via the Twitter account ‘Ghar Ke Kalesh,’ the video captures what is being described as a ‘road rage incident’ in Bengaluru. Filmed from within a moving car, the footage shows several individuals on scooters attempting to halt a car’s progress. Four individuals on scooters made repeated efforts to bring the car to a stop. However, when the car’s driver accelerated, the scooter riders overtook in pursuit.
