The Rachakonda Police in Hyderabad initiated an inquiry against the Inspector of the Saroornagar police station on Saturday after a video went viral on social media. The video, allegedly shows Inspector S Lingaiah, ordering a home guard to give him a body massage, seemingly at his home, as he sipped alcohol. Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat also issued orders, to attach the Inspector to the commissionerate until the inqury was completed. A DCP level officer is probing the incident and will submit a report at the earliest.
Speaking to reporters, home guard Saida Nayak said that the Inspector had been forcing him to massage his body, even though it was not part of his duty.“While I massage his body, he would consume alcohol sitting in the chair,” Saida Nayak told the media. “I do not have a hefty physical frame as shown in the video. Also, I don’t use the services of subordinates for such work and I don’t consume alcohol. The person in the video is not me,” Saroornagar CI Lingaiah told media persons.
