Chandigarh, August 21
A video has surfaced on social media platform X in which a Jharkhand Police officer can be seen calling singer Sidhu Moosewala a ‘terrorist’.
The video, reportedly of Jharkhand’s Jamshedpur, shows a cop reprimanding two bike-borne people, a man and a girl, for not wearing helmets. The bike, apparently, has a sticker of the deceased singer, seeing which, the cop calls him a ‘terrorist’.
The cop can be seen saying, “And you consider him an idol, Sidhu Moosewala, who is a terrorist. Second, you both don’t have helmets,” to the two youths.
