Adivasi groups fight and police collects Rs 10,000 in bribe

Sukhiram Baiga from Kabirdham district in Chhattisgarh says there was a fight between two groups of Baiga adivasis and one went to police. After that police demanded Rs 10,000 as bribe otherwise threatened to send us to jail. We have borrowed Rs 7,800 at a rate of Rs 10 and have paid to police. This way police harrasses poor adivasis threatening them of sending them to jail. For more Sukhiram ji can be reached at 09752796887
