In the past, New Zealand policemen have shown that apart from catching bad guys, they also have time for other things. Like singing in an elevator, or doing the running man challenge.

This time, they are back to give India’s Salman Khan some competition. And it’s all for a Diwali celebration. Just because you have to uphold the law, it does not mean you cannot do hip thrusts on your time off.

At an event in Christ Church, officers from the New Zealand police department performed to Thana me baithe on duty from Dabangg and Baby ko bass pasand hai from Sultan.

They showed up in uniform and tried to perform Khan’s signature steps and to keep up with the beat. All except one in the group of five succeeded, but hey, it was a sporting attempt.
