SRINAGAR: In a bizarre move a traffic police officer is seen in a viral video on social networking, confidently demanding a bribe from a trucker at some unknown location.
While confronting the police officer for having all the requisite documents, the trucker argues why to pay the bribe. However, in a shameful reply, the traffic cop threatens him that he will shoot a video of him wearing Pheran (Kashmir Traditional Loungown).
The traffic cop while treating him that he will submit the same video to the Judge. However, the traffic cop unaware of that he is being filmed while threatening and taking the bribe.
This is an Irony that the traffic cop deployed on the national highways and in the Srinagar City are demanding a bribe from the defaulters instead of curbing the menace. These corrupt cops are creating and promoting another menace of Corruption. (PTK)
