Telangana Home Minister's grandson landed himself in a controversy after a video on mobile app TikTok, purportedly showing him sitting atop a police vehicle, went viral.
Responding to the video, the minister, Mohammad Mahmood Ali, said on Thursday, 18 July, that he would look into the matter.
In the video, the minister's grandson, Furqan Ahmed, is seen seated on the bonnet of the police vehicle with another person, who suddenly gets down and lip-syncs dialogues from a movie and allegedly "intimidates" an IG rank official.
Reacting to the clip, Ali said they had gone to a function two days ago in Yakutpura in Hyderabad where one local guy made this video.
Police sources said all police vehicles are registered under DGP's name and the vehicle in the video was allotted to the home minister.
"There was no traffic violation," they said.
The Telangana Director General of Police M Mahendar Reddy did not respond to queries on the matter.
