Complaint by: Punit on August 3, 2015, 10:26 am in Government and Police

Hi - I was travelling with my family on Saturday, July 25, 2015 in Juhu and was pulled up by a Traffic police personnel Arjun Shelar at the Tulip star signal. I had unknowingly crossed the signal thinking that the traffic light had turned green.

After being held up, I apologized to the constable and was ready to pay the fine as claimed by him of Rs.100. The officer took me to a nearby lamp post and started writing his 'challan'. He took the Rs.100 from me and started entering my car number and all other details as are normally input in any challan. After completing this, he handed over the challan to me and asked me to proceed with my routine. On walking back to the car, I realised that there was no Government stamp on the challan !!!!. I walked back to him and highlighted the issue.

The officer got so rattled that he started giving flimsy excuses saying that the so called 'challan' was not meant for me and immediately started preparing a fresh challan (this time the challan book had a Government stamp). Within a few minutes, he handed over the new challan to me and grabbed the old so called 'challan' from me. I was shocked at this episode as the officer had essentially created a fake challan, pocked the Rs.100 made me feel as though I had paid the fine to the Government.

I confronted him and asked him the reason for giving me the fake challan since it was not meant for me !!!!! Not suprisingly, he did not give any answer, started telling me to mind my own business and walked away. After walking around 15 meters he stopped a biker, sat behind him and went away.

I would urge the relevant authorities to take due action against the officer (Mr. Arjun Shelar).
