Cop eats 60 puris and wins a cash prize too!

Hrishikesh Rai, a constable in Uttar Pradesh, won a cash prize for eating 60 puris, beating his earlier record of 51!

There is a need for the personnel in the uniform to chill out and let their hair down and that is what precisely happened at the Bada Khana competition organised by the policemen of the Gonda in Uttar Pradesh.

The competition organised in the Reserve Police Line of the Gonda saw a police constable eat 60 puris in one go. The name of this cop is Hrishikesh Rai, the chief constable of Provincial Armed Constabulary.

Bada Khana is organised on the night before the passing out parade of the recruits and is an old tradition in which recruits and employees share a meal together.

For those who enjoy food, the ones who eat the maximum number of puris are honoured.

Interestingly, Rai broke his earlier record of eating 51 puris. He received a cash prize of Rs 1,000. Many of those present revealed that during his younger days, Rai could eat 160 puris.

Taking to Twitter, the Gonda Police shared photos and videos from the Bada Kahan event.

Constable Amit Kumar Singh, won the second prize by eating 48 puris.

Santosh Kumar Mishra, the Superintendent of Police, attended the event and presented the cash awards to the winners. He also served food to the recruits under training and also enjoyed a meal with them.

Appreciating the effort made by the officers and staff in organising the event successfully, Mishra said such events should be organised regularly as they help spread cheer and laughter among the officials and recruits.
