Police extortion on highways frustrates motorists (with Video)
Sumel Sarker, 29 March 2016, Nirapad News: To ensure hassle free, safe and smooth journey, highway police takes action in highways. In the video below, the police men were busy taking bribes from the drivers rather than ensuring the security of the mass people.
Inspite of attacks and murder of police men many times in Gazaria checkpost area, they are not aware enough but sleeping on duty time. They also offer bribes to the journalist’s requesting not to broadcast the news of illegal highway policing.
Besides the frustration this illegal practice is causing motorists on daily basis on the nation’s highways, the security implication of highway police officers paying more attention to bribery than to actual policing can only be imagined: witness the proliferation and free movement of firearms across the country by unauthorized persons who are often allowed to transport their deadly wares to any destination of their choice at the drop of a few money for policemen on duty.
