An enquiry has been ordered into an incident in which police were seen asking unmarried couples to do sit-ups at the famed Quli Qutub Shah tombs under Golconda police station limits. A related video clip showing these young couples doing sit-ups in front of the police has since gone viral on social media.
West Zone DCP V. Satyanarayana said: “We have ordered an enquiry. We will take action based on the probe report.” Asifnagar ACP G.P. Vinod Kumar has been asked to probe the matter and submit a report. The action of the police in the video clip, which has been described as an act of moral policing, has received flak from various organisations.
