When entrepreneur Melvin Cherian received a challan for not wearing a helmet, he decided to tweet the photo to Pune police. And then a hilarious banter followed.

“Thank you @PuneCityPolice. I look good. Will pay the chalan though,” Cherian, the co-founder of a health tech firm, tweeted with his photo that showed him not wearing a helmet. A few of his fellow commuters around him were also seen without a helmet in the picture.


And Pune police replied to Cherian soon enough. “Sure,” tweeted Pune police on his readiness to pay the fine adding: “P.S: A black helmet will go very well with that nice black jacket though.”


Cherian then responded with a polite “yes sir”.
