Police is for protecting and serving the citizens, but do they actually do so?It is always told to us that police is for protecting and serving the citizens but do they actually do this? Today, I went to the police station regarding some interest levied by builder upon me for payment which I have made to him in time. Now the builder after taking all the payment is not giving handover of my flat and asking me to pay the interest which shouldn't be there at first place. It has now been 6 months fighting with the builder.
Since the builder and is not willing to relent, I went to police to complain about the fraud that builder is doing with me. To my surprise my request was turned down by him saying 'Is this my work? Please go!'
I was shocked as he was not even willing to listen to what exactly is the problem. At first instance he made me leave the police station.
I didn't feel bad, but I kept pondering as to what exactly is his work? If someone is in problem and wants to complain regarding the same, them how can he refuse to even hear the common citizen seeking help from police. Also what came through my mind that although he was polite to me but what he must be doing to the people who are poor or illiterate and would go to the police station for any complaint or FIR. How he must be turning them away. He might not be taking any complaints, so as to save himself from work.
Although, I believe that all the police officers are not the same but the behaviour what I faced made me think as to why in general people don't trust police or call them corrupt.
Has anyone else faced such situation or I am alone. Please share your views.
