Blackmail and bribes

Reported on October 22, 2018 from Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #191312

A policeman manning the way into The Gate of India (where the metal detectors are) pulled me aside to empty my handbag. My tobacco was taken and the policeman began harassing me for money.. Threatening to otherwise put me in a police station for possession of cannabis. Which I did not have! I barely speak Hindi and the blackmail went on long enough that I was lucky enough that enough kind hearted Hindi speakers walking past argued my case - that I should not be arrested or pay any money. Fortunately to say, the power of the people disempowered the policeman and I did not pay a fine. Thank god for the presence of these people because my circumstance would likely be very different without them
