New Delhi: A laugh riot has ensued on social media after former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav claimed that Google Maps could help track accidents.

Notably, Dubey was arrested at Ujjain and was being taken back to Kanpur for questioning, when one of the vehicles overturned on the highway. The car flipped when the driver, “tired after a long journey” swerved to avoid a herd of cattle that had suddenly appeared on the road, said the STF statement.
Talking about the same, Yadav, however, claimed that using Google Maps, people could determine if there were cows on the road and if the car actually overturned. Well, that wasn’t it! He also said that an investigation needs to be done soon or all the data on Google Maps will disappear.
Well, soon after the video clip starting making rounds on Twitter, users couldn’t help but be amused at the laughable claim. Many made fun of him saying that he might have confused Google Maps with CCTV cameras.
Check out the reactions here:
Meanwhile, an independent one-member commission has been constituted to investigate the death of Vikas Dubey after questions over his encounter has been raised.
Many politicians too including Yadav have questioned the ganster’s death, in the light of a petition in the Supreme Court after his arrest feared he might be killed in an “encounter”.
