Shreyansh told news agency ANI that he was returning to Delhi from Gurugram with a group of his friends when the driver of the car started hurling abuses and threats at them.
“I was returning with eight to ten of my friends from Gurugram to Delhi when he came near us and started rash driving. He threatened and verbally abused my friend. My friends slowed down a little but I drove ahead. The man sped up, hit my bike and sped away,” he said.
