NEW DELHI : An inquiry has been initiated after a video of a man doing stunts in a vehicle that had 'Delhi Police' written on it surfaced on social media, officials said on Wednesday.

The 15-second video, which was uploaded on the TikTok application, shows a man coming out of the moving vehicle and doing push-ups on top of the vehicle in a vacant plot, the officials said.

A senior officer confirmed that the vehicle in the video belonged to a private contractor and was found to be registered in the name of a person named J P Sharma.

The vehicle that has a beacon light mounted on the top and 'Delhi Police' written on the bonnet was hired by the police, the officer added.

Police said the incident appears to be old and the man seen doing the stunt in the video was not an officer. He has been identified as the friend of the driver of the vehicle.

An inquiry will be conducted by the joint commissioner of police (security). A show-cause notice has been issued to the private contractor and necessary legal action will be taken after the inquiry, the officer said.

Police said they were also going through the profile of the user, who uploaded the video on the social media application, to seek more details.
