Lucknow: A disgusting incident from Lucknow came into light on Sunday when a video of four policemen fighting with each other, allegedly over share of bribe, went viral on social media.
Eyewitnesses said the fight was over division of bribe money that was collected by the policemen from trucks and local vendors of the area.
In the viral video, two policemen are seen throwing blows and jostling with each other in public, while the other two are trying to separate them but failed to do so. The four were later joined by a fifth policeman who also made an attempt to break the fight.
The local police, however, denied the reports of bribe being the reason for the fight.
Senior Superintendent of Lucknow Police Manjil Saini said that the brawl between policeman Vijendra Yadav and the Home Guard was over clearing the traffic jam in Itauja area in the outskirts of Lucknow.
"This is not true at all. Moreover the video is nearly two-three days old," Saini commented on the allegations of fighting over share of bribe.
While Virendra Yadav has been suspended, a letter has been written to Homeguard directorate seeking action against the Home Guard, SSP Manjil Saini said.
