The incident was recorded by a netizen and later uploaded on social media. In the video, the RELA officer noticed that the BMW was driving into a one-way street and he immediately blocked the path with his body in an effort to stop the vehicle.
It is being reported that the road was turned into a one-way street during peak hours to ensure the student’s safety when leaving the school compound.
