In a heroic incident, cops in Uttar Pradesh have averted a disaster by alerting a biker whose bike was on fire on Agra Expressway.
The alarming incident was caught on tape by a mobile Police Control Room. In it, the van can be seen in pursuit of a bike that had caught fire, even as the rider remained unaware of the flames.
According to UP Police, who posted the video on Twitter, the biker zoomed past the cop van on the highway. However, while it passed, cops inside the van realised that the bags fastened to the back seat of the bike behind the rider were on fire.
