The incident is reported to have taken place in Kerala. The video is taped on the CCTV camera installed outside the showroom. A parked Seltos is seen driving in reverse. An official tried to get behind the SUV to prevent it from sliding backwards as the speed is not too high. But he couldn’t slow down the heavy SUV. By the time the rest of the staff joins in, the vehicle is sped away outside the dealership parameter onto the road. The highway looks busy but there doesn’t seem to be any mishap due to the Seltos. However, we don’t know what happens because the SUV is driven outside the range of the CCTV camera. It could’ve happened if someone accidentally forgot to engage the parking brake.
