The incident, which took place on Friday afternoon, November 3, was captured on CCTV. It shows a man on the bike refusing to budge even as the SUV threatens to run over him.
As several minutes pass, the biker clicks pictures of the SUV and its license plate. Retaliating to it, the SUV driver steps out of his vehicle and also clicks pictures of the bike's license plate.
Immediately after, the SUV driver starts hitting the biker, pushing him down the road, and across the police barricades on the road. The biker hits back in self-defence.
Several passers-by pause to witness the episode but only a handful interfere to the fight.
Towards the end of the footage, the driver climbs back into his SUV, his shirt ripped apart.
The video, posted by Indore-based resident Nilay Verma, has reportedly 5.1 million views on Facebook.
“World need more people like this rider.. Who dare enough to know the wrong and stand against it till end... Whom 'will' can't be shattered as easily as the wrongdoers think... Highly appreciable initiative, my salute,” writes Nilay in his Facebook post.
A picture of the First Information Report filed against the SUV driver under various sections of the Indian Penal code was also uploaded on the social media.
