A TikTok video showing a man performing dangerous stunts on a Delhi Police car went viral on social media on Wednesday.
In the video, a shirtless man could be seen stepping out of the moving vehicle and doing push-ups atop the car in what seemed to be a deserted spot. The car had a beacon light mounted on the top and had Delhi Police inscribed on the bonnet.
A Twitter user, Saurabh Trivedi, also shared it on June 26. “Official vehicle is used to perform stunt and make #tiktokindia video,” he wrote and tagged Delhi Police’s official Twitter handle.
Soon, Delhi police replied to post stating that the vehicle belonged to a private contractor which was hired by the police for certain duties. The department also tweeted this:
Thanks, This complaint has already been forwarded to senior officers for taking necessary action in this regard.— Delhi Traffic Police (@dtptraffic) June 26, 2019
“The person in the video clip is not a policeman, but a friend of the private driver of the hired vehicle. The private contractor has been issued a show cause notice for the violation and necessary legal action will be taken against him,” said a senior police officer. The police later also said that the clip appeared to be of an older date.
