Police SI suspended after massage video goes viral

Lucknow: A police sub-inspector in Hardoi was today suspended after a video clip went viral on social networking sites purportedly showing him getting massaged by a woman in the police station.

Director General of Police Javeed Ahmed took serious note of the video clip and asked Hardoi Superintendent of Police to take stern action against SI Sanjay Yadav after inquiry, a police spokesman said.

Prima facie it was found that the woman belonging to Devria village used to prepare medicinal oil for massage and she had been called by Sanjay Yadav to give him massage in the police station, the spokesman said.

The SI took the massage in the presence of the woman’s brother-in-law, the spokesman added.

The SI has been taken to task for “indulging in an act unbecoming of a policman” which has also “tarnished the image” of the force, the spokesman added.
