It is not known who shot the video or when the incident took place.

When contacted, the police station concerned said it had no knowledge about existence of such a video.

In August, police had rounded up 13 couples and 35 others following raids at hotels and a beach here allegedly for indecent behaviour in public.

The action, which sparked an outrage in social media circles, had led to criticism that police was indulging in moral policing.
