The fire can be seen, blazing out of the backside if the bike in the video as the cops chased it for nearly four kilometers before being able to catch up with the rider.

The cops have been greatly lauded for their bravery, a welcome change for UP Police which recently had faced flak after videos of cops shouting 'thain thain' to imitate sounds of gunshots while chasing criminals went viral.

Complimenting the cops' bravery, the DGP of UP Police OP Singh's office posted on Twitter that the policemen will be awarded the Commendation disc for their bravery. "The policemen have displayed exemplary professional commitment and outstanding conduct to avert a disaster.
