The peculiar scene raises eyebrows and prompts onlookers to document the incident.
Security Concerns: Potential Risks and Escapes
The decision to have the accused push the vehicle raises questions about security measures and the potential risk of detainees escaping during this unconventional turn of events. Instances of detainees escaping custody during transportation to court have been reported, highlighting the need for stringent security protocols.
Calls for Accountability: Probe Initiated
As the video gains traction on social media, senior police officials assure the public of strict action against those responsible for the unusual and potentially risky scenario.
