Asked for Bribe in Police Passport Verification

Reported on February 14, 2019 from Kolkata , West Bengal  ι Report #198703

I had made my passport in the year 2009 and had to pay Rs. 1300 to the Police then as bribe. When my brother got a passport, we paid Rs.6000 bribe to the Police. This is common in Kolkata. But during the reissue of my passport, I was again called for Police verification. This time I was determined to not pay any bribes. I was called to Purta Bhawan, Salt Lake, Kolkata, Room no. 321. The peon was openly asking for money for "sweets" from everyone. This is completely unacceptable and I refused to pay.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
