Constable asking for Bribe

Reported on October 25, 2018 from Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #191486

I have applied for passport from E-Seva Kendra and got appointment on 09-10-2018 at Andheri Passport office, the process was completed smoothly in the passport office.

I have temporarily shifted to another building in the vicinity as my child's school is near the temporary residence and as Santacruz Chembur Link Road is between both the buildings, it will be difficult for my child to cross the road because we leave to work in the morning.

When the Beat constable Mr. Avinash Arjun Patil came to verify the address on 13-10-2018 at 12.30 noon at my permanent address, he saw that i am not staying there and started demanding 3,000/- (Rupees Three Thousand only) as bribe to verify the address. when i refused to pay him he told that he will reject it and send it forward.

I went to Vakola Police station to report the matter and they told me to get the address correction done from regional passport office. I have reported the matter to Regional Passport Officer via mail and got a message that the matter is pending with SB-II/CID office.
