Paid a Bribe of Rs 1000 for Passport verification at Shahapur Police Station Ichalkaranji

Reported on September 17, 2018 from Kolhapur , Maharashtra  ι Report #189174

I had applied for a new passport and after about 20 days, I got a call on 23 Jan 2017 from shahapur police station Ichalkaranji for verification of my identity . He
asked me to come on th 24 Jan and meet him to complete the process

I went to the police station at 10 pm on 24th August 2017 , with all my identification documents and met Abhijeet Bhatmare and Rama Patil. After looking at my documents he asked me to pay him Rs 1000. I asked him why was he asking me for money and told him that I had all the required documents in place for him to complete the process. His tone suddenly changed and he said 'if I don't sign, then you won't get your passport'.

He signed some papers and asked me to leave. After few days later i got message from passport office police has submitted adverse report. I was taken aback by the policeman's attitude and I request action to be taken against him.
