Uttar Pradesh: An Uttar Pradesh police officer was sent to police lines after a video of his children showing off bundles of currency notes surfaced on the internet. In the video, the two children of Behta Mujawar police station (Unnao) SHO Ramesh Chandra Sahani, were seen sitting on a bed with around 27 bundles of Rs 500 currency notes.

The photo, which is now making rounds on social media, shows the police officer's wife and two children sitting on a bed with a huge pile of cash worth Rs 14 lakh. The video is said to be of Sahani's house. Taking cognisance of the matter, Superintendent of Police (SP) Siddharth Shankar Meena sent the SHO to police lines and ordered a probe by the Bangarmau circle officer (CO).

CO Pankaj Singh said in the viral social media post, Sahani's family members were seen sitting with bundles of Rs 500 currency notes. A probe into the matter was underway, he said.

The shunted SHO did not respond to calls when news agency PTI tried to contact him. However, Sahani has defended himself and said that the photo was taken on November 14, 2021, when he sold a family property.

Giving details of the incident, a senior police officer said, “A photograph of a Station House Officer is going viral on social media. It shows the cop's wife and his children with bundles of currency notes. We have taken cognisance of the matter and the cop has been transferred to the police line. An investigation has been launched.”
