Bribe paid for lost phone.

Reported on June 1, 2019 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #207567

Banaswadi Traffic Police Station
5th Main, 3rd Cross Road,
Kalyan Nagar, Near Electricity Complaint Office.

My sister in law lost her phone a month back after she had forgotten it in an auto. She went and filed a report. Today afternoon, the cops from this station called her saying they had found the phone. However, they’re saying she has to pay them 10k in order to get the phone back! Why? They say the value is 40,000 so she can give them 10k. She’s not the type to raise her voice and ask why. She paid 5000 saying she didn’t have anymore cash. I don’t have the officers details as she didn’t give me the name. It’s very sad that a person who has already undergone loss has to be further exploited by an official who is supposed to help. Her phone number registered at the police station is Farha Haque 99725 32428.
