A Chennai traffic police officer, who performed a puja (ritual) at an accident zone, has faced criticism from their superior. The officer’s actions drew the ire of their superiors, indicating a breach of professional conduct.
Performing religious rituals at an accident zone raises concerns about the officer’s adherence to their duty and the impartiality required in their role. The incident highlights the need for traffic police officers to maintain professionalism and prioritize their responsibilities.
Engaging in religious activities during official duties can be seen as a deviation from their primary duty of managing traffic and ensuring public safety.

The officer’s actions have prompted a reevaluation of the conduct expected from traffic police personnel.
