Amboli police booked the father of a 16-year-old girl, who was allegedly blackmailed by three of her friends, on charges of extortion.

On Thursday, they had arrested the three, Kavish Madan, his brother, Karan (both 18) and their friend Mahesh Devbandi (23) for allegedly blackmailing and extorting money from the victim, their 16-year-old classmate, over the last few months.

“We’ve booked the father, an advocate, for extortion. A few days before the victim complained to the police, her father had forcefully taken possession of bikes belonging to two of the accused from a garage at Charkop,” said Amitabh Gupta, ACP (West).
