Not our car, not our man: Delhi Police’s clarification over viral TikTok video

The viral TikTok video had a man coming out of a vehicle with 'Delhi Police' written on it and performing push-ups on top of it.

A TikTok video went viral on social media yesterday, in which a man could be seen getting out of a moving vehicle and performing push-ups on the car. The stunt was performed in a vacant area. However, the car had a beacon light mounted on the top and ‘Delhi Police’ written on the bonnet. Users on social media demanded action against the man for performing the stunt on a police vehicle.

The Delhi Traffic Police had responded saying that the complaint has already been forwarded to senior officers for taking necessary action.

Now, the Delhi Police has clarified that the vehicle that was used for the stunt was of a private contractor, hired for certain duties and it wasn’t a Delhi Police vehicle. The person performing the stunt was not a policeman but a friend of the private driver of the hired vehicle.

Reportedly, a show cause notice has been issued to the private contractor and action will soon be taken against him. The police have said that the video appears to be old and have said that they are also going through the profile of the person who uploaded the video to get more details about the incident.
