Four police cops, including an assistant sub-inspector (ASI), were arrested Sunday night for hosting a booze party inside a traffic police outpost (chowki) near Sardar Patel stadium in Ahmedabad’s Navrangpura.

An ASI and three Traffic Brigade (TRB) jawans from the Ahmedabad traffic police were arrested under the Prohibition Act at Navrangpura police station after they were allegedly found inebriated inside a traffic police booth (outpost) near the stadium around 9.30 p.m, said the police.

The accused police officers have been identified as ASI Kantibhai Somabhai (53) and TRB jawans Sonu Pal (22), Rakesh Chandubhai (21) and Dineshbhai Bhalabhai (26), all of whom work for the Ahmedabad traffic police department. According to the police, two of the officers were in uniform when they were allegedly caught drinking.

As per the police, a team from the B Division traffic police station, led by sub-inspector R M Rathva, raided the outpost on Sunday night after one of the four accused posted a video of the booze party on social media.

“After seeing a video on social media of a liquor party being held at the traffic police booth, a team went there and discovered an apple-flavored Vodka bottle, cold drink, snacks, and glasses.” When we arrived, there was a strong odour of liquor coming from the booth, and no accused were found there. The police team then called up witnesses and waited for some time, after which the four accused police personnel arrived at the booth again in two motorcycles.“They were arrested and taken to Navrangpura police station at that time,” stated SI Rathva in his complaint.
