Paid Bribe so that can I can release my damaged car

Reported on June 3, 2012 from Mangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #1677

My car met with an accident on 29th of may. Car was damaged very badly and i needed a report from the police officials so that I can claim my insurance. Cops suggested me not to file a FIR instead they said they will provide me with and accident report which I can produce to the insurance agent. They called me to come on 30th and collect the report. When i went to collect the head constable took me out and asked for money and then he said he will give me the report. I paid him initially 3000 rupees. He wanted more he called me inside again and asked me to give him more, since i needed the report very badly i had to pay him extra 1000 rupees. I felt bad, the people who are suppose to protect us ask money openly without any hesitation. Even if I had filed the FIR they would have asked me for bribe, in order to provide copy of FIR.
