Due to such a unique number, the video went crazily viral and brought the video maker under notice.
The activity has been reported as the case of cyber crime. Colonel Yousuf Al Odaidi, Director of Al Barsha police station explained that the car’s driver should not have waited at the spot that was reserved for the handicapped, however, this does not give anyone a right to defame him.
Police also explained that they have proper channels available on smart apps to file complaints against the citizens violating laws and rules. The person should have complained to those channels rather than making it public on social media.
However, Col Al Odaidi also explained the other side of the story and said the man who took the video stated that he made the video out of admiration and not with any intention of defaming the owner. He noticed the crowd around the car because of its unique number plate and that made him curious about it. Later, he told that he had just shared this video with a relative and a friend back in his home country. He explained that he himself was shocked to see the video going viral.
Though the intentions of this man were not wrong yet he got landed up in serious trouble for just shooting a video of a car. What if he would have photographed a random woman or made a video of her?
