Was harassed and forced into paying

Reported on July 31, 2018 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #186433

At around 9 45 am on 31st July 2018, I was driving down Kotturpuram Main Road and waiting to turn right at the IIT junction. The light turned amber just as I made the turn and several cars behind me made the turn as well. They were let go. The police officer standing there pulled me over and demanded Rs. 1500/- failing which he threatened to confiscate my license. He was not wearing a badge and did not give me his name. I was ok to pay the fine even if he felt I had jumped a signal though I had not. But he took all the money I had (Rs. 600/-) whilst threatening to confiscate my license and did not give me any acknowledgement or receipt. He consulted with another officer that he referred to as "SI" in this process.
