Electricity theft is common in India but it rarely gets caught on camera. A video capturing hilarious moments of officials conducting a raid in Uttar Pradesh recently has netizens laughing out loud.

In the viral video, a young man was caught by an electricity department official while he was trying to snip a wire illegally connected to a power line on his balcony. As he crawled out to erase evidence while the department was conducting a raid, he failed to see an official was already on the adjacent terrace recording everything.

As the man sneaked slowly to snip the power cable with pliers in hand, the official made him aware of his presence. “Main toh yehi pe khada hoon bhaiya,” the personnel recording the clip is heard saying. The man’s disappointment and embarrassment in the clip after he was caught red-handed has now left netizens in splits.

According to local reports, the incident took place in Ghaziabad’s Muradnagar area, where authorities raided after being tipped off about some power thefts in the locality.

As the video went viral, it left many in splits online and some even reacted to it sharing hilarious memes and GIFs. Many shared scenes from popular Hindi cinema to imagine what happened next trying to guess what the man must have said: “Galti se mistake ho gaya”. In fact, it even inspired Mumbai Police to turn it into a meme.
