A businessman is threatened with extortion, a reserved | Rajkot News
According to police, Jayanti Parmar (31), a resident of Juvanpur village of Kalyanpur taluka in Devbhumi Dwarka district, filed a lawsuit against Barai and others for extortion.
Police said Parmar owned a food store in Juvanpur village. He suffered losses after a fire ravaged his store in March. A few months later, on September 8, when Parmar opened the shutter of his store, he found a note warning him of the dire consequences if he did not spit out 50,000 rupees. The note also mentioned an email address.
Parmar did not take the threat seriously, but in September he again received a note demanding 50,000 rupees and threatening to kill his son. A few days later, Parmar received an email with the same threat. He later approached the district cyber police and filed a complaint.
The main investigation revealed that Barai, a resident of the same village, sent the email after which the cops filed a complaint against him and others. Police are now investigating whether Barai played a role in starting the fire that damaged the Parma store.
