In a hilarious Twitter post, an IPS officer published a photo of a vehicle with two distinct licence plates.
Rupin Sharma, Nagaland's Director General of Police, tweeted a photo of a Mahindra Bolero with two vehicle registration plates.
While the first licence plate identifies the car as a Nagaland SUV, the second begins with "AS," which is the state code for Assam.
“Yeh mere India,” the IPS officer wrote while sharing the post, adding a string of laughing face emojis to his caption. “One Bolero with two registration number plates,” he added.
