Manning the intersection of a busy road while snapping selfies with tourist, this is the tallest policeman in India who has become an overnight celebrity.

Rajesh Kumar, 39, a traffic officer in Gurgaon in Haryana, has become the face of a road safety awareness and enforcement campaign in the local area.

He is depicted as a gentle giant who offers flowers and helmets to bikers and motorists not following the rules of the road.

But while out on patrol he is now mobbed by locals and tourists alike, who queue up to have their picture taken with him.

The unusually tall cop who has become a local celebrity wants to become a WWE wrestler. Rajesh Kumar, 39, for now, is helping the traffic police run some traffic awareness campaigns, where he is being projected as the face of the enforcement campaign.

Mr Kumar carries out his patrols in size 14 boots and is so big he has to have his uniform purpose-made by a personal tailor.

But despite his burgeoning career as a police officer, he now wants to make the move into professional wrestling, considering the WWE star The Great Khali as his inspiration.

He said: ‘I want to emulate the success of The Great Khalie who was also recruited as a police official with the Punjab Police.

‘My aim is to be a wrestler of world repute just like him. I want to take part in the World Wrestling Entertainment.

‘I love my job as a cop but wrestling is my passion.

‘But I have taken up the police job for the time being. But I keep taking leave for my wrestling training.’

Mr Kumar has never been ashamed or uncomfortable around people due to his colossal height.

He added: ‘In the job it is sometimes handy being so tall because I can see over the crowds in big public order situations and watch out for any trouble.

“I don’t even have any health issues. I exercise regularly so I am quite fit for my job.”

And while most of his family are a normal height, his grandfather was 6 feet 2 inches, suggesting his size could be genetic.

As a child he was always taller than his peers and was often bullied in his youth. He doesn’t take it at heart and rejoices his moments at school.

He said: ‘I am thankful to god that everyone loves me so much. I don’t mind a few bullies as they bring some fun to life.

‘Now all that I wish for is to continue my wrestling training and somehow manage to enter the professional world.’
