Daljinder Kaur, who hit the headlines in April by becoming a mother at 72 with the help of science, is back in news. A gang tried to extort Rs 60 lakh from her.
Two accused — Deepak Kumar and Akhil Sharma — are under arrest and another, Simranjit Singh, is on the run. “They called up the Ranjit Avenue woman to say they’ll kill her husband and son, if she didn’t pay up,” said sub-inspector Nishan Singh. ““They used a number obtained on a fake address. Akhil, a family acquaintance, knew she had some land that she’d be quick to sell to save her loved ones.”
“The guidance of police commissioner Amar Singh Chahal and help from the cyber crime cell helped us solve the case,” said the police officer. All the accused belong to Tarn Taran district.
Daljinder Kaur had delivered a boy with the help of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).
