A source from the police station reveals that the duo demanded Rs 3 crore from the director. “Yes, Mr Jha has filed a case with us,” confirmed an officer from Amboli police station, on condition of anonymity.



However, he refrained from divulging any further details case. Despite repeated attempts, Jha remained unavailable for comment.
