For a dismissed Delhi Police constable, who was arrested on Monday, extortion was a preferred way of earning quick bucks, irrespective of whether he is in the job or not.

The constable, Jagdish Chander, was arrested for harassing young couples at Nehru Park, located in Chanakyapuri area, and extorting money from them. The arrest came following a complaint lodged by a DU student, police said. This is the second such case in the past two months. On September 6, another constable, Valeem Javed, was arrested on similar charges.

KC Dwivedi, additional CP, said, "Chander, who joined Delhi police in 1986, was dismissed from his job in 2006 in an extortion case registered against him at Rajouri Garden police station."

Chander, a resident of Alipur, used to impersonate as a sub-inspector and extort money.
