”Videos of the episode surfaced on social media on Thursday. Upon learning of this, a team from the local Knowledge Park Police Station launched an investigation and identified everyone involved,’ a police spokesperson said.
“The six people including the owner of the car were arrested on Friday and the hatchback car registered in Noida was also seized,” the spokesperson said.

Separately, officials from the Knowledge Park Police Station on Friday arrested a person for performing dangerous stunts on a road outside a college earlier this week, police said.
Defendant Anand Kumar, who lives in Delhi, was arrested and his car was also seized, police said.
On July 23, Kumar was performing stunts on his car on a road near a girl’s hostel and a boy’s hostel. He also swore at someone who objected to his reckless driving, police said.
Two other vehicles involved in road stunts with Kumar on July 23 had already been impounded and action taken against their drivers, they said.
