It can be seen that the biker clicked photographs of the SUV after which even the SUV driver got down his vehicle to click pictures of the biker.

It can also be seen that a few people who witnessed the event intervened in between and tried to bring the situation under control.e
The biker’s act of resistance and courage is receiving praise from many quarters. Nilay Verma, in his Facebook post, wrote, “World need more people like this rider..

Nilay even shared a photograph of the FIR that has been filed against the SUV driver.
Many people, however, expressed their disappointment over the passive participation of the onlookers in helping the biker’s cause.
