SM More, a constable attached to the Motor Vehicle Department, was suspended after he was found in senior's vehicle with a bar dancer and a businessman
One has often heard of couples indulging in acts of affection being rebuked by police officials for misbehaving.
However, the tables were turned when a deputy commissioner closed in on a police jeep only to find that a
constable was with a bar girl inside the jeep with a businessman.

The incident occurred on Wednesday night when Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone III) Kishore Jadhav was on night duty and found a parked white police jeep standing at the corner of LG Road around 2 am near Sena Bhavan.
"When Jadhav got down to check who was in the jeep, he noticed a man running from the vehicle. Later, when he opened the door, he was shocked to find a 57-year-old man and a 27-year-old bar girl in the jeep," said an officer.
When taken to Shivaji Park police station for further questioning the duo revealed that the girl was a bar dancer and the businessman knew the constable SM More, who was attached to the Motor Vehicle Department.
Investigations also revealed that the vehicle belonged to Senior Inspector Baburao Zipru Gavit (local arms division III).
"The businessman told the officials that after More had dropped Gavit home at Dadar, he had taken the vehicle and asked a bar girl to join them in the jeep," said the official adding that the duo had been booked under Sec 110 (indecency) of the Bombay Police Act. Meanwhile, More has been suspended after Jadhav submitted a report to Commissioner of Police Arup Patnaik.
The vehicle is parked at Shivaji Park police station.
"The constable should have parked the vehicle at the Motor Vehicle department's office in Nagpada. Instead, he took it for a joyride and made illegal use of the jeep," said Jadhav.
