[Resolved]  Bangalore Traffic Police — Abused and Threatened by Cop


I was booked for a traffic violation, Drunken Driving last weekend near Mount Carmel College. The fine was paid in the court room. The cop kept calling me asking me if i had paid the fine, and i can come and collect my DL from him. I was wondering why he was being so nice and calling me to find out if I had paid the fine. He called me thrice on 15/03/2013. When i called him back yesterday he asked me to come to a restaurant (Chandrika Restaurant), when i went there he asked me come to another place and the traffic constable in the corner of Cunningham Road will guide me.

I asked him why was he making me run behind him, ideally he should be keeping my DL at the police station and i shall pick it up from there. He got agitated and abused me and a verbal dual ensued. He then asked me for money to give me back my DL, which I refused and I said I will escalate the issue. After a lot of argument he threw my DL at me and said he knows what to do to me. Firstly this man makes me run all over the place behind him, asks for a bribe, abuses me, throws my DL and threatens me by saying he will take care of me.

The name of the police is Nanjunda swamy from High grounds traffic police station. I’m reaching out to the press and Lokayukta also in this regard and I request action be taken against this person for his unruly behavior, asking for bribe, insulting me, and threating me that he will take care of me.

Bangalore traffic police — Fake Reasons & Make money

Dear Bidari Sir,
I don’t know if you will read this email or Complaint, Today I had been to Indiranagar to collect my Two-Wheeler Vehicle insurance documents,while coming on CMH Road, Traffic Police(Shivashankarppa) & one Constable(both age would be around 50) caught me near to Chinmaya Hospital Signal left side ,Indiranagar, 80 feet road, opp. Swapna Book House.

I had all my Vehicle documents (Insurance, RC book, DL, Emission Test) after checking these documents they are telling me that I was jumped the Traffic Signal and they started asking for Rs.400 as a fine. But I have not jumped the signal all vehicles were moving at that time moreover there was no signal at that time. I had argued with them for 30 minutes but they are very rude, they had harassed me for 30 minutes and used abusing language at me. They told me that I have to go to Court if I don’t pay, After 30 mins of argument he is telling me for misbehaving to police I have to pay for 500/-.+ Rs 400 for Traffic Signal jumping, Total Rs. 900. There was no way left for me somehow I convinced and gave Rs.200 (without bill) and got out of that place.
From last 5 years I had my all documents up to date without any delay in renewing them. I had obeyed the government rules all these days, but I really cursing myself. I think there is no value for the Honesty.

It’s not only happening to me, whoever they catch they are eagerly waiting to see the victim’s Purse so that they can assume how much money they need to ask and with what fake reason. Both were not interested in their duties they were interested to CHEAT THE PEOPLE AND MAKE MONEY. They are the “DAY ROBBERS”

Will you be able to take action on them?
