He was arrested and charged with voyeurism, an act intended to offend the modesty of a woman and a civil servant disobeying the law.
Yadav is said to have completed the act when a woman went to the police station with her daughter on June 22 for a land dispute.
The officer is accused of touching himself while sitting in his office to talk about the dispute.
The woman’s daughter filmed the act and then showed it to her family, reports the Times of India.
It was eventually published on social media and went viral, triggering calls to action against the officer.
According to Scroll.in, Prashant Kumar, Additional Director General of Law and Order of Uttar Pradesh, said, “The police inspector who engaged in perverse behavior in front of a complainant inside from a police station in Deoria was fired.
“There will be zero tolerance for anyone who violates the dignity of women. No one is above the law. ”
The Uttar Pradesh Director General’s Twitter account posted: “We condemn the shameful and unforgivable conduct of Inspector Bhishmpal, ex. SHO Police Station Bhatni, Deoria.
“He was arrested and removed from office. UP police say it is a policy of zero tolerance for crimes against women, insensitivity and corruption. “
