Customs inspector _ Mumbai airport _ Drunk in office hours

Reported on August 22, 2016 from Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #118473

In mumbai airport i have been scrutinized by a customs officer for nearly half an hour for carrying service tools ( which i have already took from India only ) . I customs officer was expecting some money from me ..... made me wait for no reason .... Threatened me that he would file a case against me for carry tools.... I asked him to proceed with their regular (official) formalities ... I would face the case ................ he again made me wait for half an hour . And finally he decided to allow me out , as im not going to give him any money ... But in this one hour waiting , i saw many people who were scrutinized unwantedly , and threatened for money ... many poor people gave him money ( especially for carrying TV and Gold). Another thing , i noticed when i was speaking to him is ---- he has drunked in his official hours itself .

Felt very bad that day .... If the officers how has to maintain the LAW and Order himself is corrupted , then how can we blame the smugglers....

i think they should keep a camera and record the both video and audio during customs checking . This might avoid people who give money to officers and officer will also do their duty correctly
