“Sethi alleged the accused took him to a place in Fatehabad and withdrew ₹40,000 using his ATM card. He claimed that they later took him to Hisar and demanded more ₹20,000 from him with a signed blank cheque,” he said.
The police started investigating the matter and later Sethi revealed that the four were demanding ₹5 lakh from him after having shot some obscene photographs and videos with Renu. The DSP said, “After verification, the police got some leads about the accused and arrested them from Fatehabad. The police registered a case under section 342 (wrongful confinement), 384 (extortion), 389 (putting person in fear of accusation of offence, in order to commit extortion), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy).”
