A YouTube influencer from Kerala found himself in troubled waters after setting up a temporary swimming pool inside his Tata Safari SUV. The influencer, known as Sanju Techy on YouTube, shared the video of him and his friends enjoying a splash inside the SUV amid rising temperature along with a child. The video went viral on social media which led to the Motor Vehicle Department to take note and act against him. The registration of the Tata Safari has been suspended and Sanju has been booked under several sections of the Motor Vehicles Act.

The viral video shows how Sanju Techy used a blue tarpaulin sheet to set up a swimming pool inside the Tata Safari. According to reports, they were influenced by a recent Malayalam movie which also had such stunts. The influencer folded the rear two rows of the SUV to make space for the pool. The sheet was then filled with water to create a small pool inside the vehicle. The influencer and his friends were seen enjoying pool-time while sipping coconut water inside the moving Safari SUV. Sanju and his friends stopped the Safari SUV later to drain the water. This led to a massive traffic snarl as they blocked the road. The video garnered more than thousand views within a very short span of time.
