Indian man pushes his parents’ birthday present BMW into a river because he was angry it wasn’t a Jaguar

A man in India has pushed a brand new car into a river because he was upset his parents gifted him a BMW instead of a Jaguar for his birthday.
The young man, only known as Akash, from Haryana in northern India, was given a BMW M3 car by his mother and father.
