In a shocking case of road rage, a 40-year-old man died of a heat stroke when he was made to do sit-ups on the road in scorching heat because he accidentally bumped into someone's car.

According to Mumbai Mirror, the victim's body was found in his car in Secunderabad.

The police initially considered that the man may have died of a sun stroke inside the hot car. But the investigators decided to figure out why he sat in the car despite the unbearable heat.

CCTV footage from the area then showed that the yet unidentified man was made to do sit-ups by four men who decided to 'punish' him for scratching their car.

The footage also showed that the four men snatched the wallet from the already weak victim and left him there.

The Mirror reports: "Three of the accused have been taken into custody, while the fourth is at large. At the time of going to press, the identity of the victim was yet to be ascertained."
