People are having a field day on social media following the viral event.

When the video was investigated, the contract worker lineman says that his salary is Rs 5000 and a challan of Rs 6000 was issued to him. He was coming after checking a faulty line on the bike and he was not wearing a helmet, the traffic police stopped him and asked for the helmet.

The lineman responded that I have come after seeing the power line, I will use the helmet from now on. But the police issued him a challan anyway, saying that the employees of the electricity department loot and send more bills, so if there are electricity workers, then the challans will definitely be deducted.

The lineman reportedly said that at the same time, the policeman let many people who were violating rules go in front of him without deducting the challan.
