Sub:- Complaint against an officer Shri. R.M. Bhapkar. Asstt. PoliceSub Inspector for misbehavior-reg.

Please refer the following sequence of event .

1)I was passing in my maruti 800 car from rajaram Bridge to sinhagad road.
2) I was just passed the White line and the signal turned Yellow.
3)I thought this is the indication to be slow to my followers and I did not stop for signal.
4)The traffic Ploice Shri. Ramdas M. Bhapkar , Asstt. Police Sub Inspector stopped me and asked for driving License.
5)I produced the same and immediately Shri. Bhapkar replied that, I have jumped the traffic signal so I have to pay the Rs. 200/- He did not mention the term Fine and did not talk about the receipt of the same
6)I showed him an article published by RTO Authority in which the amount of Fine is Rs. 100/- I paid the same and Got the receipt.
7)After getting receipt I asked him under which rule this fine is charged? He said “who r u to ask me that?
8)Secondly I asked him to produce the I Card being a Government servant. He failed to do so and started to shout at me with a rubbish language.
9)The poor policeman created a seen by saying and challenging me to do whatever I want? He will not produce the I Card.

I have a audio recording of all this as a proof on my mobile. The officer is so smart that knowing that I am recording everything he continued to reply arrogantly.

I would like to know that, is this type of officers tolerated in police department. Is it is not necessary to produce the I card being a Citizan of India. ? are they working to safeguard the public interest or screw the happiness of the common man? Do the officer is authorized without carrying I card to collect the Fine? Who will prove the actual situation whether one has violated the Rules or not? Only having a Uniform is sufficient for the officers like Shri. Bhapkar to bend the Law as per there whims and fancies?

Sir, if asking for an I card is an offence and not providing the same is a privilege for the officer in the Democratic country like India, then it is okey. But I think this will not be a case. And hopefully your honor will take suitable action against the officers including the above one Shri. R.M. Bhapkar. I think this is the pity of our system that, the police are misusing there powers the maximum extent they can. The victims of the same are general public, the citizen of India. Which are living in a largest Democracy in the world known as India.

In anticipation of an early reply.

I completely agree with whatever happened with you..i just dont understand what these police people think of them. Arent they meant for public help, instead of torturing general public.

I have gone through such behavior today itself.
I was on my sales, getting late for the meeting. We heard of some horn from the right hand side, so the person with me, took bike little ahead. Two minutes ahead one bike overcame us and asked us to take side...we took..then we were told; "Police ko overcome karta hai..police wale ko overcome karega...shaana samajhta hai khud ko..." after every two sentence he was saying..she is like my daughter..i dont understand, , why they wanted to say like this...still not over with this , they asked for the license...we showed and then they told, , "tu jaanta hai na, chaar tarah ka aur case kar sakta hun mai tere pe.."...i just dont understand, what they had in mind..this was limit..truly..and wat we did to answer for so many questions...

On Rajaram brigde signal policeman is busy other work rather than controlling traffic and avoiding traffic congestion. They are list bothered about the six seaters stopping next to the signal and creating blockage. Also six seaters take U turn from extreme left lane creating problems people who follow the signal.

Sir, please look into these things and we expect some action being taken.
Only we people look into these forum. Just to express our anger, we do post heree. Nobody from concerned authority see this. No action will be taken...
Here is the solution!
we have founded Two wheeler association. to counter problems faced by the two wheeler riders in the state. now we are working in pune, city with most 2 wheelers in the world.
