Raipur court Tuesday sent journalist Vinod Verma to judicial remand till November 13.

The Chhattisgarh Police arrested Verma in connection with extortion and blackmailing case from his residence in Indirapuram in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad on October 27.

Verma was arrested after an FIR was filed against him by a man over a certain ‘vulgar’ video that features his boss.
