Bihar police today suspended three policemen, including a Station House Officer (SHO) of Bhojpur locale, after a video showing them hitting the dance floor with bar girls became viral yesterday, a senior police official said.
“We have suspended three policemen including a SHO, an ASI and a constable of Koilwar police station of Bhojpur area after a video footage turned into a web sensation showing them dancing with bar girls at a function held at Koilwar, a little township in Bhojpur, two days ago,” Patna Zonal IG Naiyar Husnain Khan told PTI.
The action was taken after verifying the video footage, he added.
Sources said that the dance programme was organised by a puja committee at Koilwar chowk on Vijayadashmi.
The three policemen who have been suspended with immediate effect include Koilwar police station SHO Sanjay Shankar, Assistant Sub-Inspector Devchandra Singh and a constable Bhushan, IG said.
