“This man has been here for two hours crying and saying he wants to die just because he parked his bike outside a canteen to eat and before he was done eating, petty thieves stole it and tolled it away.

“He came out to find nothing and he said he wants to be killed by a bus because his boss who owns the bike won’t let him live if he doesn’t provide it.”

In the footage the man was seen rolling on the floor and weeping uncontrollably as he threatens he won’t leave the scene because the owner of the motorcycle would kill him.
