In August 2015, a video of a ‘Drunk Delhi policeman’ went viral on Facebook attracting as many as around 2 million viewers.
Groggy, the cop – identified as Salim – is seen falling flat on his back when the train comes to a sudden halt.
Salim was suspended from his job post the video incident but was reinstated after investigation proved that it his medical condition was to be blamed for the incident.
Learning of their mistake the police also declared his suspension period as “spent on duty.”
