Back in the month of September, last year, a rickshaw driver named Shahid had sprinkled oil on his body and set himself alight near the city police office in Saddar.
In his statement shared on social media, Shahid alleged “ASI Mohammed Hanif was extracting Rs100 from him daily. I gave the policeman Rs50 on Saturday, but he insisted on Rs100 and on refusal the ASI handed me a challan.”
According to details, the incident took place as a protest against the alleged extortion by the cop, as the rickshaw driver was recorded saying that he was ‘frustrated’ with daily challan and alleged ‘extortion’ by the traffic police.
