Our Indian Police is often cursed for being a very corrupt police force.
Most of us have little or no faith in our safety and security supervisors. While there are many reasons n our country for many to go corrupt, there are many other countries which have worse case scenarios.
We all know that police corruption takes place when police forces display misconduct in order to obtain personal gains, monetary gains, or job advancements. In our country the reason to corruption at lower levels is the under-wages. They are not paid as per their job duties and hence they seek gains from other sources. In many other countries the reasons are similar but there are many a times when the act of corruption is based on purely selfish reasons. And in that case, they have broken all the barriers of corruption.
