Owner identified through registration number of BMW X6

Once it was ascertained that there was no occupant in the vehicle, the BMW X6 was taken out of the water body.

The owner of the vehicle was called to the local police station in Srirangapatna for interrogation. But the man was found to be incoherent and gave confusing statements to the police. The cops then contacted the family members of the owner. It was told that the man was in depression due to the demise of his mother. He dumped his car into the river thinking it would help him come out of the griief.

A police officer from the station informed media that the man appeared to be upset as well as confused. It’s said that the owner even the told the police that he hid his car underwater as someone was chasing him to try and kill him. None of his statements made any sense. The officer was then told by the man’s family that he was in depression after the death of his mother and drove the car into the river from the grief.
