Reported on March 20, 2014 from Navi Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #40158

Had to pay a bribe to a cop on 19 Mar 2014. Was returning from work at 11pm. He stopped me on a curve in a dangerous way. He asked me for my documents and started entering my car and rummaging and holding my cards and some toll tickets which he kept referring to as evidence. He then told me to pay Rs 42000 as tax. when I said I don't have that kind of money he let me know that I could pay half and get away with it. When I resisted the same and told him to take the car and go he said he would settle for 12000. I was upset and shocked at the callous attitude and the guts that he asked me with. I lost my frame of mind and agreed to give him maximum 3000rs. He relented and had to give him 5000rs. I don't know if I was robbed in moonlight by a robber or a cop. I hope the cops don't treat anyone this way.
