A deputy police deputy inspector was suspended on Tuesday after a video showing five cops, including a female guard, in uniform dancing to a popular Odia song at a police station in the district of Jajpur in Odisha has gone viral on social media, an officer says.
In the video, the faces and uniforms of the dancing police personnel are smeared with color as other employees of the Panikoili police station are seen clapping and applauding the five.
The incident which broke the rules may have taken place on the occasion of the Holi festival, said police commissioner Rahul PR.
ASI Sanjay Dash was suspended after a preliminary investigation, he said.
“We have launched an investigation and action will be taken against the other police officers involved in the incident on the basis of the investigation report,” the SP said.
An unidentified person captured the video and posted it on social media.
