Noida: Showing stunts while becoming powerful on a moving bike not only cost the driver dearly, but friends who made videos on other bikes also napped. A 26-year-old YouTuber with 1.5 million subscribers landed in Jail for performing stunts on motorcycle on city roads. Noida police officials on Thursday said that Nizamul Khan was previously arrested by the Noida police in 2020 in connection with the murder of his girlfriend’s brother who had objected to their relationship.
However, he had got bail from the Allahabad High Court last year and began making content for social media especially YouTube videos, they said.
Khan hails from Amroha district of Uttar Pradesh, but had been staying in Nithari village in sector 30 of Noida, police said.
“On Wednesday, some videos and pictures of a person performing stunts on a motorcycle had surfaced. The police took cognizance and the accused Nizamul Khan was held,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Noida) Ranvijay Singh said.
“During investigation, it also came to light that he was arrested by police in connection with a murder case in 2020 but had got bail last year. He had been posting videos and pictures (on social media) of him performing stunts on two-wheelers,” Singh said.
The motorcycle used for the stunts has also been impounded, the officer said, adding others involved in the filming of the dangerous stunt videos are also on the police’s radar.
“From what can be seen, it is clear that some other people were making these videos. We will soon track them and take action against them,” Singh said.
A fresh case has been lodged against Khan at the Noida sector 24 police station, with local officials saying that he was booked in a preventive action under CrPC Section 151.
“He was produced before a local magistrate who has remanded him to judicial custody,” the official said.
Similarly near Sector 63, a young man is seen doing stunts while lying on a bike in Shaktimaan style. Dressed in a red shirt and mustard pants, he can be seen riding a motorcycle. The driver is wearing a helmet, the number plate of his bike is easily hidden from the other helmet. However, at the beginning of the video, when the man was being filmed from the front, you could see the number of the bike. A man riding behind him on another bike purportedly filmed the video.
