Traffic police corruption on Mumbai Pune Expressway

Reported on August 2, 2019 from Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #211197

This happened on 10th or 11th June 2019 when I was riding my bike KTM RC 200 (MH05DT7777) from kharghar to Lonavala , but unknowingly , I entered Mumbai Pune Expressway , (on which two wheelers were not allowed) ,and I knew that I have to take the nearest exit from the expressway , as I was riding slowly in the side of the road I saw a board which showed that two wheelers not allowed beyond this point , So I just took that exit , and as soon as I was exiting from the Expressway , one traffic police Constable (From a traffic Chowki near Amity University Mumbai) stopped me and asked me to show my license and registration paper , I showed him all the required documents . He then told me that he will seize my bike and I will have to go to court to release it . So , I asked him that I can pay the fine here and I can get away with it . So , he asked me about my father's profession and what I was doing and what I wanted to become. I told him that he is Chief Engineer Officer in Merchant Navy and I want to become an IRS officer. He then told me to pay the fine of Rs.1200/- and I gave him 2 notes of rupees of 500/- and 2 notes of 100/- and I asked him for my challan reciept. He then threatened me dire consequences . He told me that he would get a case registered against me that I was not allowing a government officer to do his duty . Then I told that "you guys are there for our service and and not for threatening us" . He then told me that how easy it was for them to put me in custody at that very instance . He then told me that "Your career will be destroyed and you would come out of jail only after 7-10 years" . Honestly after this incidence I was in a complete shock . He told me to go out with a normal (smiling) face and not with a feared look as he there were cameras outside . I was literally shivering after that incident. I came to know about this Site , hence I am complaining now. I just request you to please take action against such police officers by atleast terminating them from the service.
