Pune Police took to their official X (formerly Twitter) handle early on Monday morning and informed that they had arrested a man who was posing as a cop and assaulting citizens under the influence of alcohol.

The police action comes after the video of the man went viral on social media. As seen in the video, the man, apparently drunk, is dressed as a cop and even has a gun.

Meanwhile, the man has been identified as Sushant Parte and has been booked under IPC Sections 420 (cheating), 170 (personating a public servant), and Section 85 of the Maharashtra Liquor Act.

Taking action vis-à-vis a viral video, Vishrambaug Police arrested an individual who was posing as a police officer, and hitting citizens, under the influence of alcohol. A case has been registered under IPC Sections 420, 170 and Section 85 of the Maharashtra Liquor Act."
