A policeman from Uttar Pradesh’s Firozabad district on Wednesday drew a huge crowd as he stood on the street and cried bitterly over the quality of food served in the police mess.

In a now viral video, constable Manoj Kumar is seen sobbing on the road with a plate of rotis, dal and rice while a senior official tries to pacify him in a bid to take him back to the police station.

Encircled by passersby, the constable Manoj Kumar said he complained to his seniors about the food, but no action was taken.

"I am being threatened that I will be fired from my job," policeman said.

The constable alleged that police personnel are served watery dal and undercooked rotis at the mess.

"The Chief Minister had earlier announced that the state government provides an allowance to ensure a nutritious diet for police personnel. But this is what we get after long hours of duty," he said.

"How will cops work if we won't get a proper diet?," he asks.

Here's the video:

In another video footage, the constable is seen sitting on the divider with the plate of food telling people, "even animals won't eat this."

After the video went viral, Firozabad police in a tweet said that constable Manoj Kumar has a history of disciplinary issues and has been punished 15 times in the past over irregularity and indiscipline.

A probe has been ordered into the incident, police said.
