I guess he really had his heart set on a Jaguar, the ungrateful spoilt idiot.

Police are investigating the incident, local media report.

BMW cars cost around 3.5m rupees (£41.400; $49,000) locally, with Jaguars costing about 4-5m rupees.

Pushing an expensive car into a river in a country where most people are lucky to have bus money, the gap between rich and poor is amazing. I guarantee a gang of guys will figure out a way to rescue that car.

If it wasnt running when it went into the water, its possible there is not that much damage to the engine/electrical system.

Jaguar is owned by Tata of India. They are still built in Coventry England. That might be part of his problem.

Poor baby. Obviously his parents should be sued. This lad is entitled to a Jag.

My thoughts exactly. Child neglect is obvious. An investigation should be immediate and go back decades. I'm sure there's some gross abusive behavior somewhere... such as feeding him broccoli rather then the chocolate cake the poor dear wanted.

A family friend bought their spoiled son an older Ferarri for his 17th birthday. He took a baseball bat to it in a rage because he wanted "the good one" whatever that is. They fixed the car, sold it and got him a bicycle. He wouldn't ride it, but he got the message. About six months of bumming a ride he ended up buying an older Ford Ranger from a car lot. He may still have it. His Dad isn't buying him anything and it almost resulted in divorce but he stuck to it.

I hope he gets a heavy fine for polluting the river. And I hope his father never buys him another thing. I've heard of Bride-zillas, but never a Birthday-zilla.
