[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.
