Reported on March 3, 2015 from Davanagere , Karnataka  ι Report #52942

I went to davanagere Basavanagar police station on 7-Feb-2015 to file a FIR about the lost markssheet and get an acknowledgement which is mandatory to apply for a copy of the markssheet at the pre-university and university. The sub-inspector was kind and patient enough to listen to my case and instructed tthe constable who was on duty to file the case and provide me with an acknowledgement. The constable named O Raviyappa who was on duty didn't file the case immediately and asked me to come later during the lunch hours, so that nobody is around and he can demand what he wants. Later when I turned up at the said time, the constable demanded bribe and when I hesitated he openly threatened me that if I didn't' pay him, then I wouldn't get the acknowledgement. He also told me how much I should pay him. Before leaving he also told me that he is not worried if I co plaint against him, since he told me that he is very powerful and not bothered about anyone. He even told me that many people are afraid to even take his name.
I hope this complaint of mine will reaches the suitable authorities and appropriate actions will be taken against such corrupt police officials, which will help common men like us not to close confidence in our police system.
