Mumbai: An enquiry was order after a video allegedly showing former state legislator Ramesh Kadam misbehaving with the policemen went viral on social networking sites on Thursday. The video showed that Ramesh Kadam, who is lodged in Arthur Road prison in Mumbai, was allegedly abusing and misbehaving with the escort policemen, who were taking him for medical check up.
