Hyderabad Traffic Police is finally taking action against a cop who
was caught on camera taking a bribe. The video, shot on a mobile phone, quickly went viral on social media after being posted to the official Facebook page of the Hyderabad Traffic Police last Friday.
sridhar Vemula, a Hyderabad resident, shared the minute-long video that shows a traffic cop pull over a middle-aged man on a two-wheeler for not wearing a helmet. After a few seconds of discussion, the man reaches for his wallet and appears to handover some cash. The traffic cop takes the money and lets the man go. At least three other traffic police personnel can be seen in the frame - but none of them appear to be aware of what is happening.
Mr Vemula shared the video on the Hyderabad Traffic Police's Facebook page on March 17 saying the incident took place earlier that evening in Himayat Nagar. It took the Hyderabad Traffic Police a full 24 hours to acknowledge the post. "Action will be taken...." they commented in response to the video.
