Using the famous Murga punishment, the cops make the stunt riders realise their mistake and take unconditional apology from every one of them.
Murga (also spelled murgha) is a stress position used as a corporal punishment in parts of South Asia, specifically Pakistan, India and Bangladesh.
It is used primarily in educational institutions, and by the police as a summary, informal punishment for petty crimes committed by boys, such as eve teasing or one-wheeling.
The punishment is usually administered in public view, the purpose being to deter recurrence of the offence by shaming the offender and providing a salutary example to others.
The word murga means rooster in Urdu Language. The punished person takes a position resembling that of a rooster, by squatting and then looping the arms behind the knees and firmly holding the ears.
