A day after the video of an allegedly drunk policeman travelling on the metro went viral, Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi on Monday said that he has been identified and suspended from duty.
Issuing a strict warning to his men, he said: “If any police officer is found drunk in uniform even during off duty hours, this is totally unacceptable.”
“This is one of its kind incidents. It’s an exception; we should look for the rule, not for the exceptions,” he added.
The undated video, posted on Facebook by a user, has been shared over 6,000 times and shows the constable struggling to hold on to a pole while swinging back and forth inside a coach.
The 36-second clip also shows the dishevelled policeman with his shirt untucked and trying to find his way around the coach in drunken stupor. More info
