The video has been shared by hundreds of users and have garners lakhs of views.
The oil station attendant in Uttar Pradesh’s Jalaun allegedly refused to take a Rs 2,000 note and drained fuel from a tanker of a man’s scooter.
the rider of the scooter paid Rs.2,000 note to the petrol station employee after filling up his scooter. However, the employee declined to take the note and asked for one with a smaller value to which the customer refused.
Afterwards, the argument continued. The worker used a hose to drain the scooter’s fuel tank as can be seen in the viral video.
Following the incident remarks from the petrol pump manager, Rajiv Girhotra stated that after RBI’s directive, petrol pumps are bearing most of the load.
