For this man, however, it was because he needed a ride and didn't have enough money to take the bus.

A video which went viral on Twitter after it was posted, shows an exchange between a police officer, and a man who was picked up after he dialled 100 and asked for assistance.

"You dialled 100 and said you wanted assistance?" the policeman can be heard saying. The man in the video replies, "Yes, I needed a ride to Gunnaur," (in Sambhal district of Uttar Pradesh) the man replies.

"Is this a bus service?" the policeman further asks. "I don't have money for a bus," the man can be seen replying. "If I've called 100, I'll go to Gunnaur in a police vehicle only," he further adds.

In an additional video, the man can be seen reasoning that he will not take the bus, and will take the police vehicle itself, because "its Sarkari after all." (government-owned)

The policeman can be heard agreeing at the end of the video.
