Harassment at night by so called RTO

Reported on February 8, 2017 from Navi Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #151278

I was going towards Capgemini Knowledge park from Airoli railway station.
Near cemetery of sector 20, a person accompanied stopped me to check my documents at 23:30 PM. There were 4 more people along with him who all were checking random vehicles. Because my car has GJ number plate I was the easy catch for them.

I furnished all the documents. After checking my documents the person took my license and told me to pay 5200 INR and appear in the court next day or take the challan from RTO office submit the car and come next day to pay fine at court.

While going back to RTO office in my car the person started in his way that I am a good person etc and he we can be friend. He informed that anyhow he will have to catch someone else if he is letting me go so in this case he will take 3600 INR from me and will book someone else for my offence of not paying road tax while driving car in Maharashtra.

Finally ended up taking 3500 INR from me and left me at 00:30
In order to cough up the amount the person told that I can be booked under section 420!
