Punjab : A head constable in Punjab was caught on camera as he stole eggs from a cart on a busy road in the state's Fatehgarh Sahib town, around 40 kilometres from Chandigarh.

Identified as Pritpal Singh, the cop was seen picking eggs from an unattended egg-cart parked on the side of the road into the pockets of his police uniform.

In the video clip, apparently recorded by a passerby on the road, the cop then crosses the road quickly as he notices the owner is approaching the cart. He then signalled an auto-rickshaw to stop and disappeared from the location.

The Punjab Police has suspended the cop after his video went viral on social media. 

"A video went viral wherein Pritpal Singh from Fatehgarh Sahib Police is caught by a camera for stealing eggs from a cart while the rehdi-owner is away, and putting them in his uniform pants. He is suspended and a Departmental Enquiry is opened against him," it tweeted.
