Panipat, October 6

The Panipat police have arrested two persons for allegedly demanding Rs 2 crore extortion from an arhtiya in the Babarpur grain market of Panipat.

The police produced the accused in the court, which sent them to a day’s police remand. The accused have been identified as Akash of Kachroli village of Panipat and Vikas of Pabana village of Karnal district. Shree Chand, an arhtiya, had received three anonymous letters in which some miscreants demanded Rs 2 crore and threatened that if he failed to do so, his elder son and grandson would be killed. In his complaint to SP Manisha Chaudhary, he said he found the first anonymous letter on September 14 in his godown, second on September 23 hanging at the door of a room in his fields and the third on October 1 when he was on his way to the fields.

In the third letter, the accused demanded Rs 1 crore after which the family approached the police.

Following the complaint, the Sadar police registered a case against an unidentified person under sections 387 and 506 of the IPC. Satish Kumar, DSP (Headquarter), said the SP had ordered CIA-1 Inspector Rajpal to investigate the matter. The CIA-1 team on Sunday received a tip-off about the accused and nabbed them from near Babarpur flyover, he added.

During preliminary investigation, it was revealed that Akash and Vikas had demanded money from Shree Chand to get rich quickly.
