Bhagalpur : Four accused individuals in Bihar's Bhagalpur district were filmed pushing a police SUV after the vehicle unexpectedly ran out of fuel while transporting them to court. The incident, captured on camera by bystanders, has sparked online discussions and an internal police investigation.
The video shows the four men, reportedly arrested for violating Bihar's alcohol prohibition law, pushing the SUV with ropes tied around their waists under the guidance of a police officer.
