In the video, the two men were seen dancing with a woman at a marriage function and showering currency notes on her, Joint commissioner of police (Crime branch) D J Patel, told PTI on Friday. The names of the two cops were, however, not released.
In the over two minute long video, the two policemen were first seen holding the hand of the woman, attired in a black shimmering outfit while an old Hindi film song was heard in the background.
One of the cops was then seen dancing to the song with the woman while the other was seen showing currency notes to the woman. Later they both started showering notes on her.
The video surfaced on Thursday night and was shared on mobile messaging app and other social media websites.
Some people at the event were seen recording the act on their cell-phones.
According to sources, the incident occurred in Ajwa road area in the city during marriage of a policeman's daughter.
Police said that they will take appropriate action against the erring policemen after the inquiry is completed.
Dancing in uniform indicates that the cops were on duty and it surely amounts to an act of indiscipline, police said.
