Two policemen have been suspended in Uttar Pradesh after a video purportedly showing them beating each other with lathis over the distribution of bribe money went viral on social media.

The brawl took place at a petrol pump in Prayagraj on Sunday, news agency ANI reported.

CCTV footage showed the cops arguing over something near a police van before one of them slapped the other, leading to a full-blown fight.

The two were seen grabbing lathis and thrashing each other as other cops present on the spot tried to break up the fight.

"The petrol pump where the incident happened on the night of August 11 comes under Kondhiyara police station. Both the police personnel have been suspended for now," Ashutosh Mishra, Superintendent of Police (SP) Crime, told ANI.

The four people were seen leaving the spot in the van while two people, identified by ANI as the petrol pump in-charge and his helper, stand by.

Several netizens demanded strict action against the cops.

In June 2016, four policemen were caught on camera fighting each other in broad daylight at an intersection in Lucknow allegedly over a share of bribe collected from local street vendors.

And earlier this month, the Uttar Pradesh police was forced to order a probe after a viral video showed a policeman posted at the Sitapur jail, where rape accused MLA Kuldeep Sengar is lodged, accepting a bribe from a person considered close to the legislator.
