The autorickshaw was stopped by the cops near the Bindki Kotwali area, when the policemen on duty inspected it with a speed gun, according to local media. The over-speeding vehicle was chased down by the police.
When the cops eventually told the passengers to step down from the auto, they were stunned to see more than two dozen people coming out of it, the reports said.
The autorickshaw has been confiscated.
Two months earlier, a video footage of an autorickshaw with a garden on its rooftop had gone viral on social media. The driver who came up with the idea won massive praise on Twitter and other social media platforms as well.
The driver, identified as Mahendra Kumar, came up with this creative idea to keep himself and his passengers cool during the scorching summer.
Mr Kumar managed to grow more than 20 different types of herbs, vegetables and plants in this moving garden on the roof of his auto, as maintained by a report in news agency AFP. He even planted crops such as lettuce, tomato and millets in the garden.
