To prove love, NRI woman becomes part of sex racket


(Agencies) Jaipur: In an urge to prove her love for the man she wanted, a 26-year-old NRI woman became part of an alleged sex racket that later blackmailed at least six persons. The special operation group (SOG) wing of Rajasthan police on Thursday found out about this after the woman’s arrest from Kota by the police on charges of extortion and blackmailing.
The arrest came almost a fortnight after the SOG busted a gang in the city involved in blackmailing wealthy people. Two persons were also arrested in this regard. The story of the woman, Ravneet Kaur – born in Hong Kong and residing with her grandmother in Punjab’s Faridkot – is nothing short of a film script. “In 2008 she came to India to her native village in Punjab and did a one-year certificate course in investment management. In 2009 she came to Gurgaon and stayed with the family of her friend. In the year 2012 she met a man identified as Rohit Sharma who was pursuing MBA from a private university where she was doing BBA course. That’s when both fell in love,” said Karan Sharma, additional superintendent of police, SOG. After completing their courses, they decided to get married but the boy’s family was against this relationship as neither of them were earning. “In the interrogation she confessed that rejection by the mother of the boy she loved made her go for easy money. Thus in 2013 she met the kingpin of the sex racket Akshat Sharma who offered her a job of Rs 12,000 per month. That’s when she met other gang members,” Sharma added. “All these people frequented Akshat’s office. The gang realized that the girl was desperate to earn money by hook or by crook. So in 2014 they sent her to a leading builder in the city. Later the gang threatened the builder and demanded he pay them Rs 1.20 crore, else they will lodge a rape case against him. This was her first deal in which the gang members gave her Rs 30 lakh,” Sharma said.Thereafter the gang members hunted for other soft targets varying from doctor, engineer, builders and others. “Since 2014 to February, 2016 when she got married the woman has nearly earned Rs 1 crore plus and was part of blackmailing at least six men,” he said.
