A Madhya Pradesh Police sub-inspector was ordered to pay a fine of Rs 5000 after a video of him imitating a stunt by actor Ajay Devgn from the film ‘Singham’ went viral on several social media platforms.
In the video, the police official is seen wearing sunglasses and in his uniform, as he balances between two moving cars. As he waves at the camera, a song from the film plays in the background.
The police official was later identified as Manoj Kumar from the Narsinghgarh Police Station in Madhya Pradesh’s Damoh district.

Stunts in movies are performed under expert guidance. This is pure stupidity, not heroic.

1. This is in violation of road safety laws. 2. He is in his official uniform so it is also violation of his service rules.

When the video of the stunt went viral on social media, senior police officials took a serious note of it as it will send wrong signals to the youngsters, they said.
Inspector General of Sagar range, Anil Sharma directed Damoh Superintendent of Police Hemant Chauhan to probe the matter. After investigation, the SP imposed the fine on the sub-inspector and warned him not to repeat such mistakes.
