4 miscreants demand Rs 50 lakh from builders

Four miscreants demanded an extortion money of Rs 50 lakh from a 45-year-old builder and his partner for carrying a construction work at Dwarka in south-west Delhi, police said on Thursday.

Kanwal Kumar and his partner Naresh Kumar were threatened of dire consequences if they did not pay the extortion money by the miscreants on Tuesday.

The victim approached Dwarka North police station and narrated the whole incident.

Kanwal Kumar of Janakpuri told police that he along with his partner started a construction company – First Group – and began operating at rented office near Dwarka Metro station.

“We bought a land at sector 12 in Dwarka for constructing a building. We were in the office when four persons came and asked for us.

“As my partner was dealing with a customer, he asked them to wait in another room,” Kanwal told police. 

As Kanwal entered into the room, a drunken man – among the four, who identified himself as Kishan Dahiya – threatened him and asked for Rs 50 lakh as protection money to carry out the construction work.

“He threatened of dire consequences and said ‘if I you want to build anything on that land, pay us Rs 50 lakh’, however, I managed them and asked them politely to leave,” Kanwal said.   

After few minutes, Naresh received a call on his cellphone and was asked to come out of the office by the same people.

“When Naresh along with my son went outside, Kishan  pointing out towards one of his accomplices said this man commits murder for Rs 100 so I have come here to warn you people,” said Kanwal.
They left, however, after a few hours, two persons again asked for Kanwal and Naresh. But Kanwal was busy, and so they left.

But in the evening, he and Naresh received a threatening call that if they want to live another day then they should comply with the demands. 

On which, Kanwal rushed to Dwarka North police station and registered a complaint against the extortionists.

Police have registered a case under sections 387 (extortion), 452 (house-trespass after preparation for hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.

“We have identified the people, who threatened and demanded extortion money from them. We have formed a special team to nab the miscreants. But no one has been arrested so far,” the officer added.
