2 women among 4 arrested for extorting Rs 20L from doctor
Four persons, including two women, have been arrested for allegedly extorting around Rs 20 lakh from a Delhi-based doctor after threatening him to get him implicated in a false rape case, police said on Monday.
The accused were identified as Sweta Panchal, Kuldeep Kaur, Pradeep and Manoj Solanki. It was Panchal who headed the gang, said a senior police official.
According to police, it was Kaur who allegedly targeted the doctor and developed good contacts with him.
On the evening of October 19, she sent a woman patient to the doctor’s residence at Pitampura for medical consultancy.
The patient, identified as Rukhsar, requested the doctor to escort her to a nearby bus stand as she felt a little unsafe there. The doctor agreed and when they reached the bus stand, Panchal and her husband Pradeep allegedly forced the doctor inside their car and thrashed him, they said, adding that they also threatened him that they would frame rape charges against him.
