Earlier in March, migrant workers were forced by police to hop like frogs on the road for violating lockdown orders, an act which a senior official admitted had dented the image of the force.
A video clip of the same on social media showed three or four men with backpacks being made to hop as a policeman brandishes a lathi.
Police said the incident took place on the Bareilly-Badaun road in Civil Lines police station area.
A few people on motorcycles and on foot were also seen in the clip, but the policeman appears to focus only on the youths, returning from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh to their villages in Badaun district.
The men were on the way home after the nationwide lockdown to fight coronavirus left them jobless in Gwalior.
