The Delhi Police has registered a case following a complaint by Bollywood actress Karismakapoor's estranged husband Sunjay Kapur that he has received extortion threats via e-mail on Friday evening, demanding 50 Crore Rupees.
"We have registered a case and are carrying out investigations," Joint Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Karnal Singh said on Saturday.
The noted industrialist Kapur said in his complaint that he has been receiving these threats regularly from anonymous callers from last few weeks. However, initially, he ignored them, took the matter seriously after receiving an e-mail, in which Sunjay was clearly warned that he would be killed, if not paid the money.
The e-mail also told Kapur that he could inform the police at his own peril.
Kapur has not named anybody in his complaint. Police sources admitted the possibility of involvement of any person who knows Sunjay but refused to link the matter with Karisma, saying that it will be to early to say anything.
Kapur, currently involved in a quarrel with actress Karisma Kapoor over the custody of their five-months old daughter Samiara, had petitioned the Delhi High Court seeking to prevent his wife from taking Samiara out of the country, following which Karisma has filed an affidavit accusing Sunjay of 'deserting' her.
"Sunjay has made no financial contribution to the upkeep of the child and the prenatal, delivery and postnatal care of the mother," she said.
Sanjay Kapur has urged a court to authorise him as the natural guardian of his and his estranged wife's 4-month-old daughter.
The court issued an interim order saying Samiara could not travel overseas without her father's permission.
Karisma had stopped acting two years ago after marrying Delhi-based businessman Sunjay Kapur. She was married to Kapur after breaking off an engagement with actor Abhishek Bachchan.
