According to local police, Panwar, who could be seen in his uniform in the video, visited the restaurant for dinner on Friday night in an inebriated condition and was accompanied by a woman, who is a city-based lawyer. An argument ensued when Panwar’s friend allegedly heckled the staff for quicker service and then allegedly snatched Panwar’s service pistol and trained it at the waiter.
