As is the case with polls in India, police presence is at its peak on polling days and De shared a picture of an overweight policeman and captioned it 'Heavy police bandobast in Mumbai today!' So infantile.

Mumbai: Author Shobha De's tweet ridiculing a Mumbai policeman seems to have backfired with the social media and even the Mumbai Police trolling her.

Mumbai Police was also not too pleased with the post and slammed her stating that neither the uniform nor the official belonged to their department and stressed that they expected better from "responsible citizens" like De.

The tweet went viral, getting retweeted more than 1,700 times within 30 minutes.

The account, which has over 17 lakh followers, is handled by a dedicated team of professionals. It has received 785 likes and has been retweeted 268 times so far. They said that the joke was in bad taste and instead of trolling the Mumbai Police, she should respect them. "What a waste of money and opportunity", De had tweeted. Here are the responses to her tweet - some of the mildest we could find. Selfies lo. Khaali haath wapas aao.

P.S - Mumbai police, this is for you.
