Extortion bid of Rs 2.5 crore foiled, 2 held

NEW DELHI: Delhi Police has solved the extortion case of Rs 2.5 crore and has arrested two accused identified as Aman Kumar and Aman Tiwari, both residents of Jharkhand.

During sustained interrogation, the accused Aman Kumar Jha disclosed that in the past, he has also worked in the printing press of the complainant in model town of North West Delhi for about one month from July 2018 to August 2018.

During this short period of time, he observed that money can be easily extorted from the complainant if he put him in some fear. He collected all the relevant information about the owner, which he used at the time of calling to the complainant for extortion. He has no job. He was very upset as he was in dire need of money and as such he along with his brother in law 2nd accused identified as Aman Tiwary executed his earlier plan to extort money from the complainant.

Accused Aman Kumar Jha was confident that the complainant will not report the matter to the police and he will give the extortion money in fear. Security in plain clothes was provided to the complainant at his residence as well as at workplace round the clock and he was directed to continue negotiation with the caller. The two accused were arrested from Jamshedpur, Jharkhand in the early hours of April 7.

"As per plan a new SIM card was arranged by Aman Tiwari on April 4 for exclusively used for demanding money from the complainant. The next day Aman Kumar Jha made threatening calls to the complainant and initially demanded Rs 50 lakhs but later increased his demand for Rs 2.5 crores," said DCP North West Vijayantha Arya.
