Delhi: Three held for extortion
Three people were arrested for running an extortion racket, the Delhi Police said on Sunday.
The suspects were arrested following the complaint of a 65-year-old man, who owns a garment factory in Okhla, from whom they were demanding ₹1 crore, said police.
Apart from the elderly businessman, at least four other people from Delhi-NCR were being blackmailed by the suspects, who have been running the racket for many months. One laptop, a pen drive and a micro SD card — all containing objectionable videos and pictures of the arrested woman and her many victims, some of whom are yet to be identified, were seized, said police.
“Two women’s handbags fitted with spy cameras, a car and six cellphones that were being used in the crimes were also recovered,” said deputy commissioner of police (crime) Manoj C.
