Bribe taken by traffic polive

Reported on September 4, 2020 from Howrah , West Bengal  ι Report #224330

I was driving when there was a turn to my left where a bus was going, I was following the instructions given by GPS, so I followed the bus, later a traffic police stopped me and told me its a 1 way, I asked him the bus was going, he said "the buses are allowed but not any other vehicle". The policeman asked for my driving licence, I showed him and he took it to his senior officer, the senior officer said since the car is not local if we submit your license to the authority, you will be charged 3000rs or more but i can give you your license back if u give me 2000rs. He literally said that you give me 2000 rs and then there would be no problem. I said would you give me any receipt for that, he denied and got rude that I am leaving you for that money. This happened soon after we crossed howrah bridge going towards Kaikhali under some bridge. The police man had no star on his shoulder and neither was he wearing a name badge, when I asked his name he did not tell that.
