A video of police training in Telangana has caught the attention of netizens for a very special reason. It was conducted to the tune of the song Dhal Gaya Din from the 1970 film Humjoli.

ASI Mohammed Rafi’s special style of conducting the drill has gone viral and also received a mention from the IPS Association. A tweet from the handle, shared earlier today, shows another snippet from the ASI’s musical drill.
“Training Tunes By Rafi,” says the tweet. “ASI Md Rafi from Telangana State Special Protection Force has more in common with the legendary singer than just his name. ASI Rafi brings recruits out of homesickness & physical duress by singing songs while conducting physical drills,” says the tweet further.
The video has also won praise from tweeple collecting over 2,800 likes and more than 500 retweets - and counting.
