Have fun making TikTok videos? Not if you’re a police inspector. Sub-inspector Mohammad Arif posted at PGI hospital police station in Lucknow posted two videos in police uniform while reciting dialogues.
Though the videos went viral, Arif was sought to give an explanation on why he made the videos on duty.
SSP Lucknow Kalanidhi Naithani told India Today,
“We will seek an explanation from the cop for posting a video on social media. If a cop is on duty and is wearing the uniform, discipline should be followed. General instruction is being issued to policemen not to indulge in any indiscipline on social media platforms by posting videos in uniform.”
Arif is not the first police personnel to make TikTok videos on duty. A policewoman from Gujarat was suspended for posting a video of dancing inside police station. Two Delhi Police constables also faced action for singing on duty at a VVIP location.
