Gurugram: 'Intoxicated' cop blocks road and dances, because he can!Last updated on Jul 31, 2018, 02:22 pm
A police inspector and his friend gave quite a show to passers-by at Sheetla Mata Road, Gurugram, in the wee hours of Monday.
Both, allegedly inebriated and wearing ganji and shorts, were dancing to loud music that was playing inside the cop's SUV.
The only low point was the car was parked right in the middle of the road, causing a huge traffic gridlock.
"I am an inspector and can dance on the road"
Local dhaba owners and drivers of the vehicles stuck in the jam prodded him to remove the white Fortuner, but the accused cop, Tarun Dahiya, refused to comply.
He loudly announced he is a cop and the in-charge of Tauru crime unit in Nuh district (35km from Gurugram) and that he can do anything without facing action.
The outrageous revelry continued for 30 minutes.
Police patrol van arrived, asked to clear road, he refused
Unable to tolerate any further, someone informed the local police and around 2AM, a patrol van led by sub-inspector Sakender Kumar arrived.
Kumar asked Dahiya to clear the road; again, he refused.
"Meanwhile, truck drivers gathered at the spot and tension was mounting," narrated Kumar, adding his seniors instructed him to bring the duo to the Sector 5 police station.
'Dahiya abused us, pulled my hair, but team recorded incident'
"Dahiya kept abusing us and even pulled my hair in the jeep," read Kumar's report, adding his team recorded the entire episode as evidence.
At the police station, ACP (law and order) Jai Singh and SHO of a nearby police station were called in.
But they allegedly decided to just file a report and keep the matter hush-hush to save the department from embarrassment.
Cops tried to hide the matter, but media persisted
However, to their shock, the video went viral and media took it up with Gurugram Police Commissioner KK Rao, who said he has ordered Nuh SP Nazneen Bhasin to suspend the errant police officer.
"This is intolerable. If a common man had done it, he wouldn't have been spared. Then why a cop, who is expected to be more responsible?" asked Rao.
