UP cop under fire for posting Tik-Tok videos in uniform

A police constable in Uttar Pradesh is under fire for having posted Tik-Tok videos of himself in uniform. Sub-Inspector Mohammad Arif has posted two videos of himself at the PGI police station in Lucknow, which have now gone viral on the social media. 

In the first, the cop is seen dubsmashing the dialogue: "Yeh police station hai, tumhare baap ka ghar nahi. Jab tak baithne ko na kaha jaaye khade raho (This is a police station, not your father's house. Don't sit till you are asked to)."

In the second video, Arif is seen sitting on a chair, pointing towards his service revolver, which is kept on a table behind him, and saying: "Na policewalon ki dosti accchhi na dushmani (Neither friendship nor enmity of cops is good)."

Commenting on the video, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Lucknow Kalanidhi Naithani said they will seek an explanation from the cop for posting the video on the social media.

"We will seek an explanation from the cop for posting the video on the social media. If a cop is on duty and is wearing the uniform, discipline should be followed. General instructions are also being issued to policemen not to indulge in such indiscipline on social media platforms by posting videos in uniform."

This is not the first time a policeman is in trouble for making Tik-Tok videos on duty. In July, a policewoman from Gujarat was suspended after a video of her dancing to a song inside a police station went viral on the social media.

Two woman constables of the Delhi police also faced disciplinary action when a video of them singing on duty at a VVIP location went viral.
