Pimpri Chinchwad, 16th February 2024: Pimpri Chinchwad Police took swift action against a young daredevil whose rooftop stunt atop a Mercedes C200 on Telco Road went viral. The incident, captured on Thursday (15th February) at around 12:30 pm, showcased the “heroic” young man calmly sitting on the roof of the luxury car with a dark blue shirt. The young man has been identified as Vishnudas Madhukar Sawant, a resident of Kothrud.

The car’s registration number, MH43 R 7272, linked it to Navi Mumbai RTO passing. Following the incident gaining widespread attention, questions arose regarding the police’s response.

Today, Pimpri Chinchwad Police addressed the public through their official ‘X’ platform, formerly Twitter, revealing that they have arrested Vishnudas Madhukar Sawant. The post sarcastically compared a WhatsApp video of the stunt to the “prize” awarded for their “Adventure Sports.”
