Bhangra to Get Punjab Police in Shape

Punjab Police have adopted the 'Bhangra', a weight-shedding dance, as an exercise technique to make cops fitter and healthier. The state-wide implementation of the bangra was done by replicating the Bathinda police of Punjab.

The state's Director General of Police (DGP) N.P.S. Aulakh has asked Bathinda district police chief Naunihal Singh to make a presentation on the initiative to get police personnel into shape through exercises that also include a 'bhangra-dance' drill.

Singh, a young Indian Police Service (IPS) officer posted at Bathinda, a south Punjab district, introduced the unique exercise regime for fat, overweight and pot-bellied policemen recently.

Those police personnel who need to shed weight take part in the exercise, including dancing to bhangra-pop numbers, every morning for over one hour.

In just two weeks, the personnel undergoing the weight-loss regime have collectively lost over 500 kgs, Singh said.

Singh will now make a presentation before senior Punjab police officials at the police headquarters here with details about how the scheme can be implemented in the other districts.
