Bihar police today suspended three policemen, including a Station House Officer (SHO) of Bhojpur district, after a video showing them dancing with bar girls went viral yesterday, a senior police official said. “We have suspended three policemen including an SHO, an ASI and a constable of Koilwar police station of Bhojpur district after a video footage went viral showing them dancing with bar girls at a function held at Koilwar, a small township in Bhojpur, the day before yesterday,” Patna Zonal IG Naiyar Husnain Khan told PTI.

The action was taken after verifying the video footage, he added. Sources said that the dance programme was organised by a puja committee at Koilwar chowk on Vijayadashmi.

The three policemen who have been suspended with immediate effect include Koilwar police station SHO Sanjay Shankar, Assistant Sub-Inspector Devchandra Singh and a constable Bhushan, IG said.

“Bhojpur Superintendent of Police has also been asked to initiate departmental proceedings against these policemen for their improper conduct. We will not tolerate such conduct at any cost in which policemen, including SHO, were seen dancing publicly at a stage,” IG said adding that this is not expected from a police officer.

    As per our esteemed Supreme Court; Dance Bar are virtuous and girls should be allowed to dance and be present in Bar when the monied customers are under the effects of alcohol. There is nothing wrong in it . This is allowed in Mumbai and should be allowed in the premises of SC sothat the tired litigants, lawyers, ( but not Judges) can enjoy the invigorating dances of the balas. It appears that Bihar government has not heard SC judgment on Dance Bars. Kindly restore the services of the police officials who were suspended for dancing with bar balas.
