"Don't do this. One small stone or a minor dip in the road is enough to cause irreversible harm that you will not want to face," Whitefield Rising, a prominent citizens group, wrote on X (formerly Twitter), sharing the video.

"And if the child wants a thrill ride, be the parent you are, and need to be."

Responding to the video, the traffic police said action has been taken.

"Taken action against him," Mahadevapura Traffic Police wrote on X, sharing a photo of a traffic policeman handing over a challan to a man, presumably the owner or the rider of the two-wheeler.

"This is very dangerous. The side foot rest on scooters is not strong enough to take the weight," X user Sivakumar Rajappan said.

"...and one day when that breaks, the kid will fall. And the mom will not be able to hold him," Whitefield Rising said in response to the user.

"What a bad and dangerous idea to perform circus on the road," another user, Syed Huq, said.

In recent months, there have been a several incidents of two-wheeler riders performing stunts, such as wheelies, with viral videos prompting police action.
