Baripada: A Police Constable has been suspended after he was caught on video urinating inside an ATM kiosk in an inebriated state. The video was widely circulated on social media and hence resulted in his suspension by Mayurbhanj SP.
Samir Kumar Sethi is a constable of Mayurbhanj District Police. Action was pending against Sethi as he had not reported at his duty for months now without any intimation to his higher authorities.

Few onlookers shot the indecent act and posted the same on social media. The video went viral instantly and there was public outrage with demands of action against Sethi.
Mayurbhanj SP Parmar Smit Parshottamdas ordered a probe in this matter and resultantly Constable Samir Sethi was suspended. Notably, Sethi has been previously suspended for similar indisciplinary activities, police sources said.
