In July, photographs of a policeman in uniform kneeling down in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with folded hands had gone viral on social media. The picture was clicked at the Gokarnath temple when Circle Officer Pravin Singh knelt down at the feet of Adityanath.

However, the cop later clarified that he paid respects to CM Adityanath, who is also ‘Peethadishwar’ and ‘Mahant’ (head priest) of the Gorakhnath Math “out of devotion”.

“Out of my devotion and after removing my belt, cap and other accessories and covering my head with a handkerchief, I took blessings of Peethadishwar Mahant Yogi Adityanath,” Singh had said.

In another such incident in Punjab, an Assistant sub-inspector (ASI) posted at Batala’s Fatehgarh Churian police station was suspended for “misconduct” after he touched the feet of Punjab minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa at his Qadian residence.
