In a shocking development, a senior cop on Tuesday was caught on camera slapping an elderly street vendor in Lucknow.
The officer, DIG D K Chowdhury, was on a regular patrol in the Uttar Pradesh capital when he got embroiled into a verbal argument with an elderly vendor.
Soon, he lost temper and slapped the street vendor hard.
The incident took place in Bhoothnath Market near Indira Nagar.
The video of him slapping an old man has now gone on viral.
PTI reported that the Director General of Police Javeed Ahmad had sought an explanation from the DIG on his action.
Not so long ago, another police officer was caught on camera smashing up the type writer of the 65-year-old Krishna Kumar, again in Lucknow.
