Smartphones have given us an amazing facility to shoot videos whenever and wherever we want. A good thing about this is that it can also help in reducing corruption if videos are made at the right time, like Sridhar Vemula did.
Sridhar who is from Hyderabad shot a video at Himayatnagar which showed a home guard from Narayanaguda traffic police station taking bribe from a middle-aged man on two-wheeler.
The name of the home guard is M. Satya Vishnu and he stopped the two-wheeler rider because he was not wearing helmet. We can see some more traffic police officials in the video but it appears as if they were unaware of what was happening behind them.
The video was shot on March 17 at 4.30pm at Himayatnagar junction and it was uploaded on the official Facebook page of Hyderabad traffic police by Sridhar.

After 24 hours of the posting of the video, Hyderabad traffic police responded, saying “Action will be taken….” The video has got strong reactions; it has been viewed for more than 5,00,000 times and shared for more than 10,000 times. On March 20, Hyderabad Traffic Police responded to the initial post and wrote, “He is being removed from Traffic Department and disciplinary action will be taken as per rule.”
While several online users didn’t want to get him fired but suspended for a month, there were few who were of the opinion that the government should increase their salary so that they don’t get involved in corruption.
