NEW DELHI: A Delhi Traffic Police Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) has done what his force couldn’t do. After Delhi Traffic Police failed to attract people on social media despite spending lakhs of rupees, ASI Rambir Sangwan’s video about stop line violation has garnered over 54 lakh views on Facebook.

The 45-year-old traffic cop has also authored 16 books on traffic, Indian Penal Code, Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), etc. Sangwan also teaches students in colleges and schools in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh Haryana and Himachal Pradesh and his seniors about traffic violations and CrPC.

“I have received almost two dozen rewards and awards in 15 years. I have also received Delhi Police’s Asadharan Karya Puraskar, one of most the prestigious and rare award,” Sangwan told The Sunday Standard. “After giving lectures on law in Police Training College of Delhi Police for a decade, I realised people are not very keen to listen about traffic violations and find them tough to understand. I started shooting videos of police personnel stopping offenders.”

He has uploaded over 50 videos, and 15,000 people view them daily. His Facebook page is PTC Delhi Police Rambir Sangwan Law Instructor. The video bug bit him while he was in Police Training college as a law instructor for almost 12 years. Someone once asked him to sing a part of CrPC, and shot a video of him singing. “From there I got the idea of creating videos that are viewer-friendly,” says Sangwan
