Regarding bribing the police for passport verification.

Reported on October 19, 2019 from Gopalganj , Bihar  ι Report #215638

I had applied for a new passport and after appointment about 7 days, I got a call on 04 sept 2019 from gopalpur police station (near semra bazar) for verification of my identity . He asked me to come on in 1 hour on that day and meet him to complete the process.

I went to the police station at 1 pm on 4 September 2019 with all my identification documents and met one clerk (his name is balindra sah) . After looking at my documents he asked me to pay him Rs 2000. 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'.

I told him that I didn't have Rs 2000 to pay him. In a very angry tone he said to me go home i will not submit your clear verification .when your passport will on hold then u will understand. I was scared and wanted to get the passport process done bcoz, i have to submit my passport in the college for taking placement . And I had to pay 1800 rupees till the end. After that, He signed some papers and asked me to leave. I got my passport but the process left a bad taste for me. I was taken aback by the policeman's attitude and I request action to be taken against him. Plz sir help me. Thank u.
