An individual who travelled to Ahmedabad to watch the final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 between India and Australia found himself in a rather unconventional troublesome situation.
In a GSTV video clip that went viral online after the World Cup final, the individual claimed the Ahmedabad Police extorted Rs 20,000 through UPI payment after he was travelling to the dry state with a 'bottle of vodka.'
In the GSTV video clip, the individual said he showed the transaction details. However the same has not become public yet.
A video alleging demand of bribery frm a visitor from Delhi has been published in the media. After taking cognizance of the seriousness of allegations, an inquiry to the ACP Traffic 'C’ div has been ordered, which will be followed by strict action against the responsible person— Ahmedabad Police અમદાવાદ પોલીસ (@AhmedabadPolice) November 20, 2023
The crowd attending the World Cup Final already faced the heat for its lack of enthusiasm during the final match, which resulted in India's defeat.
This incident should be a major embarrassment for the city police, especially considering that the Government of India is contemplating proposing Ahmedabad as the host city for the 2036 Olympic Games.
