A video of the incident has gone viral on the internet and what’s funny is that the man is in high spirits while dancing to the number! His impressive moves make the cops cheer and hoot for him! Have a look:

People on the internet are divided over the nature of the punishment imposed on the man. While many said how it was harmless, some pointed out how it was a misuse of power.


According to NDTV, the police in-charge has been suspended and sent to the police lines as punishment for the incident.

“At Naya Shahar police post, a video has emerged in which the police in-charge is making a person dance inside the premises. The move amounts to indiscipline, and it has tarnished the image of the local police,” the police said in a statement.
