On Thursday midnight, a couple in Karnataka’s Bengaluru was allegedly harassed by police officers who compelled them to pay 1,000 through the payment app PayTm for ‘breaking the law’ by wandering on the street near their home after 11 p.m., which they said was not permitted. The pair was on their way home from a birthday party.

A man named Karthik Patri described his ordeal on Twitter and asked the Bengaluru City Commissioner of Police for assistance.

Mr Patri begins his ordeal by saying, “I would like to share a traumatic incident my wife and I encountered the night before. It was around 12:30 midnight. My wife and I were walking back home after attending a friend’s cake-cutting ceremony (We live in a society behind Manyata Tech park).”

He claimed they were a few metres from their entrance gate when a patrol van pulled up next to them, and two men in police uniforms demanded they produce their identification. The cops were in a Pink Hoysala van; complaints submitted via the Suraksha panic app or police control room number 112 likely resulted in a rapid response from Pink Hoysala.

The cops took the couple’s phones and questioned them about personal information after they showed them photographs of their Aadhaar cards.

Here is the entire thread:


Anoop A Shetty, Deputy Commissioner of Police, North East Division, Bengaluru City, responded to the Twitter thread, thanked Mr Patri for bringing it to their attention and promised harsh punishment. A constable and a chief constable from the Sampigehalli police station have been suspended as a result of the investigation.
