Passport Police Verification

Reported on September 6, 2020 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #224374

I was asked to visit for police verification for the renewal of my daughter (minor) passport. Showed him Aadhar, Old Passport, and Last year's school id card (since this year due to corona they haven't issued yet). Upon understanding that i can't am not fluent in the local language (Kannada) the officer demanded 500. i pleaded why? Then he said i don't believe she is a minor and asked for a photograph. I suggested if the objective is physical verification and since my daughter was along with me, why he wants a photograph. Later he went on to enquire which IT company i am working, educated me i should learn the local language, etc. Then i pleaded I have only 200 but he refused saying the fees is 500. I coughed up the amount. In the few mins i spent watching him, he must have pocketed at least 2000.
