The video shows the officer dancing with abandon, holding his cap in one hand. He’s cheered on by four other men, two of them in police uniform. While one man is seen filming the dance with his mobile phone, another appears to be a housekeeping staff, wearing a blue uniform.

Unconfirmed reports say the dance took place in Chennai last month when the officer had come for Republic Day duty.
