Not 'Jal' but 'Jail': Assam Police warns drug peddlers with a hilarious Amrita Rao meme
Dispur | Jagran Trending Desk: The Assam Police also followed the suit of Mumbai Police on Thursday when it attempted to raise awareness by connecting to the masses in a language that appeals to them the most – the language of memes. The ongoing crackdown on drugs peddling in the state has led to huge seizures of drugs in the state in the past few weeks. Recently, the Assam Police shared actress Amrita Rao’s now-famous still from Rajshri Productions’ film ‘Vivah’ (2007) which also featured Shahid Kapoor in a lead role.
In a Twitter post shared Thursday, the Assam Police said “if the neighbourhood drug peddlers have vanished into thin air, well, that's on us”. They added, “The inconvenience is not regretted!”
The tweet resulted in a huge appreciation for the state Police force on the microblogging platform. Many users praised the Police action against the drug peddlers while calling the men in uniform working to get the hold of drug peddlers as ‘super cops’.
“All credit goes to Assam Police.. please continue to hunting them. Love our super Cops,” one user wrote.
