The long video of a man stealing a plant in Lucknow and fleeing away in his car has gone viral on the internet.

In a rather absurd incident, a man with a car was caught on camera robbing a plant in Lucknow.

As can be seen in the clip, the man is initially seen walking and looking around, to check whether it is safe to take away the plant or not. Once he is aware that there is no one around, he tries to pick up with his hands. However, it appeared that the plant was too heavy to be lifted. The said person was then seen struggling while lifting the plant.

Soon as people from the house came outside, the man put the plant in the boot of his car and fled the spot. The incident took place in Lucknow’s Indira Nagar.

The one-and-a-half-minute long clip is going viral on the internet. Since being posted online on Wednesday, it has already been viewed almost six thousand times and has been liked by more than 200 users.

The comments on the post as one would expect are quite hilarious. A person on a rather witty note said, “Dedication towards greenery can make him UP's environment brand ambassador. He should be honored, well-done man”.

Another person, who was perhaps wondering if the man was lifting a dumbbell or plant, wrote, “wonder if he is lifting a plant or is stealing tumbles for his home gym”.

Some other reactions on the post included:


Earlier this year, a similar incident happened where an elderly man was caught stealing pots from the vertical garden in Delhi.
