The incident took place in the suburb of Nallakunta in the city of Hyderabad located in the southern Indian state of Telangana during the ‘Bonalu’ Hindu festival.
Murlidhar, a spokesperson from the Nallakunta Police Station, said: “[The] Bonalu festival was celebrated in Hyderabad City and as part of the arrangements, our police personnel were performing their duties.
“Sub Inspector Mahendra was at a procession in the area. A person named Bhanu, a resident of Malkajgiri who came to attend the procession in Nallakunta, obstructed Sub Inspector Mahendra and kissed him in an inebriated condition.”
Cops confirmed that the suspect has been arrested and charged with obstructing a police officer.
Murlidhar added: “We have taken him into custody and he is being sent to judicial remand.”
In the footage, a group of men is seen dancing outside at night as a patrolling policeman in uniform passes the scene.
In that moment, Bhanu, seen bopping away in a black T-shirt and jeans, grabs him by the waist and places his other hand on the back of his head.
He then plants a smacker on the cop’s lips who responds by slapping his face.
The reveller then returns to dancing as Sub Inspector Mahendra glares at him.
