Lucknow: A shocking incident was caught on camera in Itaunja, near Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh (UP) where cops were seen scuffling with each other over alleged distribution of bribe. The cops allegedly used to collect bribe from the local vendors but the fight among the policeman broke-out because of the unequal distribution of the bribe.
The incident has raised serious questions over the law and order situation in the state of Uttar Pradesh. As the assembly polls are due in 2017, the opposition has tried to corner the ruling Samajwadi Party with fresh ammo from this incident.
The recorded video has gone viral over the internet and is receiving very strong reactions in light of the degree of lawlessness in the state of UP.
Former DGP of the state Vikram Singh condemned the incident and said that the cops that are seen in the video fighting should be immediately suspended as they failed to maintain the sanctity and respect for the police uniform.
