A young man in India apparently pushed into a river a BMW he received as a birthday gift. It is unclear if they managed to get the BMW out of the water.

A man allegedly sank his BMW into a river because he was angry his parents didn't buy him a Jaguar.

Rescuers had rushed out to the vehicle, which came to rest on a bank of tall grass, thinking that someone was inside after villagers raised the alarm, according to the Deccan Herald.

But he was unhappy with the auto, say local police, because it was too small for him and his mates.


Police eventually caught up with Akash and questioned the 22-year-old about the submerged BMW.

"When the youth was plunging the high-end BMW vehicle into the river, he also made a video and put it on social media", the police said.

Local police say the man filmed the auto in the water and sent the video to his parents.

The lad's father, Sanjeev Kumar, said: "I wanted to give my son a birthday present".


"We could only afford to give him a BMW, while he kept on insisting that he be given a Jaguar", he continued.

Most of us as teens were probably thrilled to get our own vehicle, even if it was a hulking piece of junk.

According to India Today, the man was later seen trying to get the auto out of the water with the help of some people, but it was stuck on a patch of grass.

"We never imagined he would do anything like this". The Times of India reports the man wanted a Jaguar instead.
