There is an RTI document from 2018 which says this plate is fake. I wonder if this is still running around in 2022 with the same plates.

This is very peculiar since the owner of that Range Rover, per his social media, is an Indian representative to the UN. However, I am not sure about how the number plate privileges work for such members. There's infact two such Range Rovers, one white as pictured above and another one in bronze as attached. The car can be seen escorting a Rolls-Royce Phantom that it shares garage with, during some sort of a UN meeting in the city a few months ago.

Re: Various Embassy & Consulate Vehicles!

Spotted this BMW X6 parked in front of a very nondescript apartment block in a very nondescript suburb of Bangalore.

What was it doing there? And why?

Can you shed some light on who the owner is? its a public figure so its probably within TBHP rules to name them I recon. I tried looking for it in the source you shared but could not find anything.

The entire thing seems highly irregular to me, 2 cars with the same diplomatic plate & the plates being non-standardised, an RTI reply from MEA stating its not a number they have issued, and a UN vehicle escorting a private vehicle (albeit a Rolls-Royce). Red flags galore.

Also, AFAIK, representatives are usually IFS officers or politicians, won't they get cars registered under the administration/central government instead of UN registered cars?

Either someone rich thinks they're so above the law that they are flouting the UN charter, OR my understanding of the UN charter is severely flawed. Anyhow, would love to get to the bottom of this.
