Celebratory firing at his farewell ceremony seems to have cost Katihar Superintendent of Police (SP) Siddharth Mohan Jain dear. His central posting has reportedly been put on hold for now. In a video clip posted by ANI, Jain is purportedy seen firing several rounds in the air as people around him cheered and danced.

On coming to know of this, the Additional Director General of Police said strict action will be taken against Jain. “This is unacceptable. We will investigate the matter and take strict action against him. His central posting has also been stayed till then,” ANI quoted ADG SK Singhal as saying.

The video shows the SP shaking a leg and then whipping out a revolver and firing at least five times in air. The incident reportedly took place in Bihar’s Katihar district on Tuesday.
