Disciplinary action has been taken against 11 Delhi Police officers in two separate incidents from Dwarka and west Delhi, the police said on Monday.

In the picture, the Inspector Inderpal Singh is seen seeking blessings from one Namita Acharya. With his uniform on, Mr. Singh was seen sitting on a chair while the god-woman is seen placing her hands on his head.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Vijay Kumar said it was not proper for him to do such an act in uniform.
