SP squats

Lucknow, Dec. 5 (PTI): A superintendent of police was today caught on camera squatting on the floor in front of Uttar Pradesh agriculture minister Anand Singh during an event, prompting the state government to seek an explanation from the officer.

Special secretary (home) Arun Kumar Singh told reporters that principal secretary Arun Kumar Gupta had sought a clarification from Banda SP Udai Shanker Jaiswal.

Necessary action will be taken after receiving the reply, Singh said.

Anand Singh, an erstwhile royal, was attending an inauguration at Simauni village in Banda district when Jaiswal chose to sit on the floor although chairs were available.
