Tamil movie sparks row, features Odisha DGP as Martyr


Bhubaneswar: In a serious gaffe, a Tamil movie dubbed in Hindi has portrayed Odisha Director General of Police (DGP) K.B Singh as a martyr.

In the Tamil film titled “ACP Shiva”, lead actor Raghaba Lawrence, who has played the role of ACP Shiva, is seen standing in front of a wall with the pictures of a number of police officers who laid down their lives for the country. The pictures of the martyrs have also the photograph of the Odisha DGP.

“I would like to give my life for the country but I am still alive. They should not have done this,” reacted DGP Singh.

He said perhaps, the film’s crew members have downloaded his photograph from internet while searching for martyr police officers.

The Director General of Police said he would take up the issue with the producer and director of the film.
