At 7’4”, Rajesh Kumar Is the Tallest Cop in India


A 7’ 4” traffic cop is stunning commuters in India as he mans a busy intersection.

The unusually tall cop who has become a local celebrity wants to become a WWE wrestler.

Currently, Rajesh Kumar, 39, is helping the traffic police run some awareness campaigns, where he is being projected as the face of the enforcement campaign.

A gentle Kumar is no bully on the road; he offers flowers and helmets to bikers and motorists who break traffic rules. And judging by the rush to get selfies taken with him, he can stake claim to a fan following in Gurgaon, Haryana. Rajesh walks the beat in size 14 boots and is so big that he has to have his uniform custom-made by a personal tailor.

A local celeb himself, Rajesh considers WWE wrestler The Great Khali his role model.
