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.

The video has received more than 43,000 views within hours of being posted. Netizens have criticised the cop for calling the singer a ‘terrorist’.

Commenting on the video, an X user said, “Who is this cop?? What proof he has Sidhu mossewala is a terrorist??? Need to file a defamation case for terming an innocent person as terrorist without any proof.”

Another tweeted, “Sidhu musewala an Indian world popular singer. Shouldn’t have used that kind of word for him. I know jsr police will definitely take action jai hind.”

The rising criticism seems to have been brought to the knowledge of the Jamshedpur police. Reacting to the viral video, the Jamshedpur police tweeted, “An enquiry has been initiated. Proper action will be taken against the erring officer.”
