Indian Custom Officials illegally kept $2500 USD

Reported on October 6, 2019 from New Delhi , Delhi  ι Report #214822

I was carrying cash (more than $5000) which I thought was legally allowed and was randomly picked up for custom inspection at IGI Delhi Terminal 3, and unfortunately I honestly told these guys how much cash I was carrying. The moment they learned this I knew I was in trouble - they told me I will be arrested, they will inform my employers in US, and I may be booked for Havala, and all sorts of things. I was brought in a separate room for further negotiations in private. These were two custom guys (one slightly chubby and dark, and the other one thin and on the fairish side both in mid-late 30s - just in case this would be useful)
They asked for more than $3000 and we finally settled for $2500.
I think I got terribly ripped - they took a lot of hard earned money.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
