On being contacted, the citizen told ARY News that, “Initially, I deposited a fee [for the issuance of a driving licence] but I failed an eyesight test. Someone put me in contact with Mirani who then called me directly to his office saving me the hassle of obtaining a token.”

At first, he said, the official asked him for Rs3,000 bribe besides paying the licence fee but agreed on Rs2,500.
