Taser gun is an electroshock weapon which fires dart-like electrodes at the target. Due to electric shock the target suffers neuromuscular incapacitation resulting in temporary immobility.

The video of DGP taking Taser shot went viral on social media in which Ahmad can be seen falling on the ground after the impact. His colleagues can be seen assisting him as he tried to get back on his feet.

The IPS Association hailed Ahmad on Twitter. "Kudos to @Uppolice DGP @javeeddgpup for taking Taser shot on himself during a demo. Taser a non lethal electroshock," said its official twitter handle.
