A video of a child driving a Maruti Alto in Hyderabad has surfaced on the internet. The child, who looks like a 10-year-old, was spotted driving the vehicle on Outer Ring Road in the presence of his parents on December 8.

The 16-second clip was shared by a Twitter user Tiger Neelesh. In the video, one can see a silver colour Maruti Alto bearing a number plate AP 28 BL 6979, driven by a child as his parents sit comfortably on the back seat.

Neelesh wrote, "An act of stupidity or wilful recklessnes. Video of outer ring road of Hyd on 8.12.19/ 9.32 Am. How these people risking their lives n also others moving around. Car driven by kid aged around 10 in the presence of parents."

In a trail of tweets, he even asked the Hyderabad traffic police to take “strict action” against the parents.

“Drinking and driving is a crime and in many cases driver is sent to jail. But a kid driving under supervision of parent is not sent to jail? [sic],” The New Indian Express quoted Neelesh as saying.

Kushaiguda Traffic Police Station has generated an e-challan against the vehicle. According to the receipt shared by the police station, the cops have raised a Rs 2000 fine, which includes disobedience of orders (Rs 500), dangerous driving (Rs 1,000) and underage driving (Rs 500).
