    what is there to probe. Just interdict the cop or ask the victim to return him a slap in public.

    Suspend the policeman and ask him to collect his salary from the Indian deputy high commission in H'thota.

    Power of the social media. In India, bribe taking cops were secretly filmed and images loaded into social media. As a result Cops are trying not to take bribe if that can be avoided.
