Police have filed a case against a Delhi tourist who was recently caught on camera recklessly driving a Hyundai Creta SUV on the much popular Anjuna beach in Goa. The case has been filed by the Police on Thursday, as per an official.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Jivba Dalvi told PTI that Lalit Kumar Dayal, a resident of Delhi's Mangolpuri area, was booked for driving the SUV dangerously on the Goa beach. The car was rented from a local resident, however, the images and clips that went viral on the internet don't show the vehicle bearing a yellow plate which has been designated specifically for commercial taxis or rented vehicles.

Driving on beaches in Goa is banned for obvious reasons and also the authorities close down the beaches to avoid any mishaps. However, similar incidents have come to light in the past where tourists flouted these bans and later got into trouble.
