A VIDEO of a bizarre incident from the eastern Indian state of Bihar went viral on Sunday (4) when four individuals, all accused of consuming alcohol in the dry state, were made to push a police vehicle after it ran out of fuel in the city of Bhagalpur.

The four men were being taken to a court for hearing in the same vehicle.

The vehicle, a Scorpio manufactured by Indian company Mahindra, came to a halt near the city’s Kachari Chowk as its fuel tank became empty. The police officers accompanying the accused then asked them to push the vehicle to the side of the road. They pushed it for around 500 metres.
