A Bangladeshi vlogger and his girlfriend were travelling in Bengaluru when an auto driver scammed them. The incident was brought to the attention of the police when a Kolkata-based vlogger shared the video on social media and tagged the Bengaluru Police. The police acted quickly to identify and apprehend the auto driver.
“Bangladeshi blogger and his girlfriend were travelling to Bengaluru Palace. A local auto driver cheated them. This is how we treat foreigners. Please take action,” wrote X user Mrityunjay Sardar while sharing the video on the microblogging platform. It was originally uploaded on YouTube by the Bangladeshi vlogger Md Fizz.
The video shows Fizz, handing a ₹500 note to the auto driver. The driver then says that the fare is ₹300 and slips the ₹500 note into his sleeve. When Fizzasks how much he has given, the driver pretends that he has only received a Rs100 note. Fizz takes the money and hands over another ₹500 note to the auto driver.
