The frustration and funny side of the false complaints

Sunday, July 20, 2014

A man calls head of the district police force and says, there is a vehicle with "so and so" number carrying arms, ammunitions and explosives and moving on "so and so" road. The officer alerts several teams and dispatch them to intercept the vehicle. After an hour of hectic search operation, the vehicle is finally located. When taken a thorough search of the vehicle, not even a single suspicious thing is found. Ordinary mortals traveling in the vehicle were so shocked by the police team that they had no clue what was happening there!

Officer then makes a call back to the guy who had given information about the vehicle. Thorough interrogation revealed that one of the guys traveling in the vehicle was actually going to court to give evidence against the guy who called this officer and gave that fake intelligence. He was facing a trial in the court! He used this trick just to make sure, that poor soul doesn't reach the court room, in time, and give evidence against him!

As an ordinary mortal, what would you do to that guy? Sometimes, people find themselves too creative to make policeman's life miserable and to meet their selfish ends.

In another case, a guy dials emergency number 100 from his phone and informs police control room that his father is brutally murdered and he needs immediate help. Control room informs the concerned officer in the area and alerts the nearest police station. A team from police station reach the spot within 20 minutes after the emergency call and finds nothing wrong with anyone there. No dead body at all! When asked about the emergency call, the guy simply refused to accept that he made that call. After thorough interrogation he confessed that he was drunk and he had a heated argument wth his father. He made that call to see how fast police reach his home.

Social experiment? Well, I must say, WTF? He thought it's so much fun to make policemen run around like dogs. He did not have a slightest idea that providing false information would land him in jail!

In yet another case, a teenage girl's father comes to police station and reports that his daughter was kidnapped. Police launch a search operation with whatever little inputs they got from girl's friends and family. After 5-6 hours of rigorous search in the night, the girl was found with her boyfriend at a public place enjoying a romantic conversation. She thought she would return home early in the morning saying that she was at her "friend's" place. But, luck wasn't on her side.

What action would you take against her boyfriend, who, according to girl's father, was a kidnapper? Poor father, couldn't wait a little longer to see his daughter return home from what would have been a wonderful date for her!

Sometimes people intentionally mislead police to take advantage and meet their selfish ends. For example, an illegal liquor seller calls up police and says some Mr.X is carrying #N number illegal liquor boxes in "so and so" vehicle traveling on "so and so" road. If police buy this information and go for a raid, they will make a fool of themselves. Most of the time the guy who calls is actually faking and most of the time he calls to give information about his rival and divert the attention of police so as to deliver illegal liquor to his own client!

Many times policeman's time and energy is wasted because of fake intelligence. It just tests patience and perseverance. We cannot take emergency calls casually. Even if the information is fake, we need to invest our time and energy to verify the facts. Most of the time, cost of inaction is simply huge. In the above examples, what if the vehicle was actually transporting arms and ammunitions? What if the guy's father was actually murdered and he badly needed help? What if the girl was actually kidnapped by someone? Breaking News? Whether or not the information coming in is true or false, policeman has to invest his time and energy to respond to the call and take action. Fake information just adds to his frustration. But it does make policemen to be more patient!
