The officers found a white powdery substance in the motorist’s car and demanded a bribe to avoid arrest. The complainant reported the incident, leading to the officers’ arrest in 2021. Despite their not-guilty pleas, the state prosecutor argued for direct imprisonment, emphasising their role as police officers responsible for upholding the law.
