The Sadashivanagar police detained two journalists in an extortion case on Tuesday evening.

Journalists Hemanth K and Manjunath are working in private Kannada news channels.

A senior police officer said a Padma Shri awardee filed a complaint, stating that the duo tried to blackmail him in connection with a private video and demanded Rs 50 lakh.

"We are interrogating them and if their involvement is proved, both will be booked under extortion and other sections. They would be produced before the court on Wednesday," the officer added.
