Reported on April 4, 2015 from Bokaro , Jharkhand  ι Report #54392

Name of Officer: Nagendra Kumar Sharma
Date of Incident: 03-March-2015
Time of incident: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm (Approx)
Location of incident: Our house in Chira Chas, Bokaro Steel City (Complete address can be provided if required)
Designation of the officer: Verification officer/Inspector (?). He didn't disclose his exact designation, but mentioned he had worked with CBI.
Description: Mr Nagendra Kumar Sharma had visited our home for verification of my parents on 3rd March 2015. Even after collecting all the required documents as mentioned in the list on Passportindia.gov.in, he said that it was not enough. When we said that we had all the required documents as mentioned on passportindia.gov.in, he threatened us and said that we should not try to "teach him law", as it was in his hands and on his "mood" to process my parents' verification. He said he could reject it at his will and got up and started to leave with anger when we did not pay him bribe. My parents are old (my father is retired), and he was afraid that he may reject the application and paid him Rs 1000. Even then the officer was not satisfied and asked for more. My father paid him Rs 2000 in total. We are afraid that once he finds about this complaint, he may reject our application for no reason. But I still want to bring this to your notice. I hope some steps will be taken against him and corrupt officials like him who threaten and demand bribe.
