Bengaluru Police surely knows their TV shows. Not only do they appreciate them, they even know how to ‘play’ them up.
The police’s Twitter handle uses memes inspired by TV show and movies to deliver its messages and it seems the city’s citizens are loving them.
Here are some of Bengaluru police’s hilarious tweets.
1. The ‘Lord of Light’ and the ‘Lord of traffic light’
Swear it by the old roads and the new, there is only one lord on the streets of Bengaluru. All hail, Traffic light! pic.twitter.com/oBRS6EZQqU— BengaluruCityPolice (@BlrCityPolice) June 8, 2017
Melisandre, a priestess in Game of Thrones, worships the ‘Lord of Light’, and she often hails her god every time she appears on screen. Bengaluru police certainly knew how to use her favourite dialogue for their illustrious tweet on traffic lights!

In an attempt to scare drug dealers in the city, Bengaluru police dropped a witty reference to Netflix’s popular show Narcos. However, the interesting part was that Netflix too had a response to the little poem.
But Bengaluru police replied to it too, like a boss.
