Mumbai Cop Booked After Video of Him Dancing With a Woman on Local Train Goes Viral

A Mumbai police officer has been booked after a video of him dancing with a woman in the second-class ladies coach of a Central Railway local train went viral on social media. The incident happened on the night of December 6, 2023, while the officer, identified as SF Gupta, was on duty as a home guard assigned to ensure the safety of women during nighttime travel.

The video, which quickly went viral, initially shows Gupta providing instructions to the woman who was filming a dance reel featuring her daughter. He appears concerned about her safety and is seen guiding her to prevent any accidents.

However, the situation takes a surprising turn as the video transitions to Gupta actively participating in the dance alongside the woman.

In response to the incident, the Government Railway Police (GRP) filed a default report against Gupta on December 8. They emphasized that all staff members are prohibited from shooting, posing for videos or photos, or engaging in selfies while in uniform and on duty.

Gupta has been summoned to provide an explanation for his actions. While dance videos on trains have become increasingly common, the inclusion of a police officer on duty in such an activity has raised concerns.

This incident also echoes a similar case in Kerala, where a police officer, KP Shaji, was suspended for dancing during a temple festival while on duty. Shaji, an additional sub-inspector of the Santhanpara police station, faced disciplinary action for his inappropriate behavior.

This incident raises several questions about the conduct of police officers and the potential impact on public trust.

  • Should police officers be held to a higher standard of conduct than other public figures?
  • How can we ensure that police officers maintain professionalism while still being able to interact with the public in a positive way?
  • How can we prevent similar incidents from happening in the future?

It is important to note that the investigation into this incident is ongoing. We will provide further updates as they become available.
