Senior officials of the Kurnool district police in Andhra Pradesh have ordered an investigation, after CCTV footage of three policemen exchanging blows went viral on social media.
The incident reportedly happened at the Raj Vihar Centre, one of the busiest areas in Kurnool city.
In the video doing the rounds, two policemen are seen on a two-wheeler, not moving forward even when the signal is green.
Even as other vehicles manoeuvred around the two-wheeler, the policeman driving the vehicle was reportedly seen talking on the phone.
Following this, a home guard traffic policeman approached the bike, and attempted to take away the keys from the vehicle.
The pillion rider immediately disembarks, even as the rider is seen pushing the home guard away. The pillion rider then goes on to push and shove the home guard even as several onlookers who were gathered, witnessed the scene.
Within a few seconds, another passer-by seemingly tries to intervene and split the two fighting parties, following which the two policemen get on the bike and ride away.
Watch the video below.
The New Indian Express reported that the two policemen were brothers and had been suspended by Kurnool Superintendent of Police A Ravi Krishna.
Stating that the incident had occurred a few days ago, the TNIE report also added that the duo had rowdy sheets opened against them, and still managed to join the force.
