Viral Video Sparks Outrage and Immediate Action

The DGP’s tweet comes in the wake of a video that went viral on social media platforms. The video shows a police personnel and a driver inside a police vehicle in Guwahati, openly consuming liquor. The video has sparked public outrage and raised questions about the discipline and professionalism within the Assam Police.

Zero Tolerance Policy

In his tweet, GP Singh stated, “A video of police personnel drinking liquor on duty in Guwahati has been brought to my notice. We have zero tolerance towards police personnel being inebriated on duty or while in uniform even if off duty. They shall meet the same fate as many others before them.”

Severe Departmental Action Promised

The DGP has assured the public that the officers involved will face the “most severe lawfully permissible departmental action.” His tweet further emphasized that such behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Public Reaction and Future Implications

The tweet by the DGP has been widely appreciated by the public, who have long called for greater accountability within the police force. However, it also serves as a reminder that much work remains to be done to ensure that all officers adhere to the high standards expected of them.

The Assam Police Department, under the leadership of DGP GP Singh, has sent a clear message that indiscipline and unprofessional conduct will not be tolerated. It remains to be seen what specific actions will be taken against the officers involved, but the DGP’s swift and public response has set a precedent for accountability and transparency within the force.
