A UP policeman was left with no choice but to imitate the sound effect of a gun to scare off a criminal after his gun was jammed during an encounter in Sambhal district, 370 kilometers from Lucknow. The criminal was wanted for a number of robbery cases and had a reward of 25 thousand on his head.
The video of the incident instantly went viral on social media. The UP cop can be heard saying “maaro, maaro, ghero, thaye, thaye” to scare off the criminal. Watch the full video of the incident here.
The cop also talked to ANI about the incident. He said, “This was due to a technical glitch of the weapon that the officer was carrying, such things are not new and may happen at times. With regard to the cop shouting, it is a tact to deal with criminals mentally and create pressure on them to surrender.”
