For Passport Police Verification police asked bribe

Reported on January 11, 2019 from Faridabad , Haryana  ι Report #196477

I went to Sarai Sector 37 Faridabad for passport police verification of my mother and my wife. On giving all the documents and aadhar cards of 2 neighbors, I said thank you sir and the police officer said - "Sirf thank you aur kuch nai - aur koi seva pani nai - humara kuch nai".

I clearly said no for seva pani and said I already paid the fees to passport office and I can't do any seva pani. On listening this his behaviour changed and he gave me the police verification form of my wife to me and tell me to submit it to the other police office who is responsible for police verification of my wife. Also, he told the other police officer that her address proff is only 6 months old. The other police officer told me that it would be rejected, because its only 6 months old, even if your wife get married 6 months ago only. I told him to submit as it is and I will see if it gets rejected.

Later, I shared the incident of asking "Seva Pani" by police office in twitter handle and share with @cmoharyana. Next day I got a call from SHO Sarai police station asking about my complaint. Same day in the evening my wife & my mother gets message that their passport gets police clearance and passport printing has been initiated.

Democracy work...Only you need to fight and start saying no to these corrupt officials. Please don't pay the bribe. If You will pay the bribe, they will expect the same from everyone. If you say no to bribe and fight against it, next time they will think before asking bribe.
