Paid a bribe to ensure faster processing of passport application

Reported on November 17, 2012 from Bhubaneswar , Orissa  ι Report #535

I am against corruption.I along with few of my ********** mates had been to our nearby police station to get our passport applications verified.That day the officer named **********(as he said it) from bhubaneswar,Odisha, infocity police station having cell number- ******* asked my 3 friends to come individually to his cabin where he asked to pay bribe of Rs 500 each and so they paid as they were not from here.Though I being localite ,he did'tt ask me anything on that day but the following day he called me on my cell phone and asked me to come and pay bribe.I went with another friend who had the same issue.There I denied to pay and he started threatening me saying that he would block my passport in Criminal department and would delay it for months and no one even would find my application.Forcibly I had to pay the bribe.It has already been 2 months and my passport status displays the same status as pending police verification in respective thana.This is gross.Such a disappointment being ruled by a pitiful government.
