Duo extort Rs 9 Lakh from college principal, held


PUNE: The police arrested a former student of a college in Talegaon Dabhade and her accomplice for blackmailing its principal and extorting Rs 9 lakh from him.

The FIR stated that the former student had called the principal on June 1 on his cellphone. She said she was in some trouble and requested him to visit her house. After receiving quite a few calls, he agreed to visit her house in Pimpri.

The two then beat up the principal and forced him to take off his clothes. The police said the woman then took off her clothes and stood next to the principal, while her accomplice made a video on his cellphone and clicked some photographs.

The two then showed the video clips and photographs to the principal and threatened to share those on the social media if he did not pay Rs 30 lakh. The two had succeeded in extorting Rs 9 lakh from the principal. During the last two days, the duo started calling him again and demanded the remaining amount of Rs 21 lakh. The principal, who is married and has children, failed to collect the amount and decided to approach police.
