In the video, which was also telecast on TV channels yesterday, a police officer is lying face down in his undershirt and pants while a policewoman, in her uniform, is seen pressing his back. The alleged incident occurred a few months ago at the armed reserve headquarters in Jogulamba Gadwal, Superintendent of Police (SP) MS Vijay Kumar yesterday said.
He added that he ordered a probe as soon as the video came to his notice.
The ASI was apparently suffering from a backache and had requested the home guard to press his back which she did willingly, the Mr Kumar claimed.
The officer denied it was him sitting in a chair watching TV as his subordinate, in uniform, massaged his bare back.
