The Superintendent of Police
Subject: Prayer, to take measures against the toll collectors.
We, the inhabitants of ‘X’ are now captives at the hands of the terrorists and the toll-collectors. The businessmen, professional men, and service-holders are passing their days in great concern. They often demand a large amount of toll on them. If anybody refuses to pay the toll, he is threatened with death. They also demand toll to the owners of the buses. A toll is extorted at gunpoint. When anybody builds his houses, the toll-collectors come to him and extort toll from him. Even the small traders, the hawkers, and the rickshawalas have to pay a regular toll to them. Sometimes they extort toll in the nose of the police. The activities of these toll-collectors have assumed such an alarming proportion that, if they are allowed to go on unchecked, it will be impossible for many people lo live in their homes.
I, therefore, request you kindly to take drastic measures against the toll collectors and bring back ease and peaceful atmosphere in the civic life of ‘X’ Thana.
Yours faithfully ‘A’
