Indian YouTuber arrested for driving recklessly: Warning labels are frequently featured in action-packed movies since the results of reckless actions performed without the correct supervision can be disastrous. Joravar Singh Kalsi, a YouTuber from Delhi, and his friend Gurpret Singh were recently detained by Indian police for reckless driving while attempting to reenact a scene from the Shahid Kapoor film Farzi.
The police identified Kalsi, who has a sizable following on YouTube, because of a video called “Paise uda Feroz,” where he and a companion can be seen driving down Golf Course Road while throwing phony bills and mouthing dialogue from a web series. According to the Indian Express, they joined the inquiry and were released.

The two were accused at the Sushant Lok police station of violating Indian Criminal Code sections 279 (rash driving or riding on a public route), 283 (risk or obstruction in a public way or line of navigation), and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others).
According to Vikas Kaushik, a police official, “Social media brought the issue to our attention. In the video, two persons can be seen driving down Golf Course Road while acting out a scenario from a web series. It appears they acted without any safety precautions in place and without any authorization. Recently, it has been seen that individuals have been making such movies in an effort to acquire fame on social media, endangering the lives of commuters and raising the possibility of tragic incidents. Against the individuals in the video, a case has been filed.”
The FIR claims that two guys were operating a car carelessly on Golf Course Road, with one driving and the other hurling false bills onto the road. On March 2, a video of the incident was taken, and Joravar Singh Kalsi—who the police later identified—uploaded the video on YouTube. On a motorcycle, two additional people captured the incident on camera. The bogus currency notes were marked with Manoranjan Bank of India and had 500 and 2,000 INR denominations.
Police officials have urged the public to refrain from such behaviour, especially in congested areas like Golf Course Road that are dangerous for automobiles and pedestrians. The tragedy serves as a reminder of the dangers of performing feats without the appropriate safety equipment and qualified supervision and the value of abiding by traffic laws.
