Cop in soup for teaching kids to shoot
New Delhi: An inspector posted in the Northwest district of Delhi Police has been suspended after a video of him teaching his children how to use weapons at New Police Lines firing range surfaced online.
In the video, the policeman can be seen teaching his daughter and son how to use the MP5 gun, following which the daughter fires at a dummy target.
The policeman, who is posted as an inspector in reserve serving at the police lines, is first seen explaining the MP5 submachine to his children. While his son can be seen sitting and checking the gun, the daughter is standing beside him with another police officer.
“He has been placed under suspension and departmental inquiry has been initiated against him,” said Vijayanta Arya, DCP (Northwest). The incident occurred during the annual target practice that was under way at the police lines for three days.
