INDIA Team Latestly|

A fuel tanker overturned at the side of the road leaving two people including the driver injured in the accident. Dozens of locals can be seen around, but not helping the injured, rather trying to scoop up whatever overflowing petrol they can. While some used funnels to fill their bottles, others their bare hands. This incident was captured on camera when a fuel tanker, going from Gwalior to Sheopur, overturned in Pohri due to overspeeding. The video, shared multiple times on social media, shows villagers from Madhya Pradesh's Shivpuri district, collecting petrol in plastic bottles & containers from the overturned fuel tanker. Some even came on bikes to get their share of free petrol. Petrol and diesel prices have seen dramatic surges in recent times across the country and have breached Rs 100 per litre mark in many states.
