Lucknow, May 18: In a shocking revelation, a WhatsApp message has exposed the Uttar Pradesh police’s ‘bribe rate card’.
The Noida senior superintendent of police has reportedly ordered an inquiry into the incident. Around 18 officers of the Special Operation Group of the Noida Branch were transferred to line which is akin to a demotion.
As per the sources, some policemen fought with each other over ‘distribution’ of the bribe amount. The fight became ugly and later a constable forwarded the ‘Rate Card’ to DGP.
Following this, DGP then directed Noida SSP to order a probe in the matter.
Interestingly for festivals such as Holi, the rate is Rs 50,000 , special allowances were made, from the bribe collected.
