Five arrested women to be questioned on new leads
Indore: The five women arrested in a honey-trap and blackmailing racket in Indore and Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh will be made to confront each other during questioning to verify new leads that have come up, a senior police official said on Friday.
Five women and a man were arrested in Indore and Bhopal on September 18-19 for allegedly running the racket, and police had seized electronic gadgets, including spy cameras, as well as mobile phones and cash.
Police had identified the accused as Aarti Dayal (29), Monika Yadav (18), Shweta Vijay Jain (39), Shweta Swapnil Jain (48), Barkha Soni (34) and Omprakash Kori (45).
The honey-trapping racket was busted after Indore Municipal Corporation superintendent engineer Harbhajan Singh approached police claiming the accused were blackmailing him to the tune of Rs 3 crore over objectionable video clips.
Speaking on the probe, Senior Superintendent of Police Ruchivardhan Mishra, a member of the SIT, said, "We have found some important clues. We will question the accused on the basis of these leads. The accused will be made to confront each other so that these leads can be verified."
