Watch: UP Police makes ‘thain thain’ gunshot sounds to scare off criminals

In the most bizarre encounter ever a Uttar Pradesh police personnel shouts ‘thain thain’ as an attempt to echo the sound of a gunshot to intimidate criminals during an encounter in Sambhal after his revolver got jammed.

The Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), in an attempt to create panic amongst the criminal and create mental pressure, uses words like ‘maaro maaro’ (as in killing them), ‘ghero ghero’ ( as in blocking them) as his revolver malfunctioned during the encounter.

The ASP confirmed that the cartridges getting stuck in the revolver was due to a ‘technical fault’.
