3 cops suspended for extortion

 A police sub-inspector and two constables were suspended from service for extorting money from the employees of a private courier company.

Police said inspector Vajramuni and constables Prasanna and Shivakumar, all attached to the High Grounds police station, have been placed under suspension.

On February 9, the two constables stopped a couple of employees of a private air service parcel company, who were travelling by an autorickshaw near Queen’s Road. They checked the parcels and found jewels worth Rs 30 lakh in them. The constables alerted Vajramuni, who rushed to the spot. They asked the employees to call their office and one Parasmal Modi arrived. The SI then demanded Rs five lakh as bribe to release the parcels. Modi and his employees managed to pay Rs 40,000 to the police. But the SI and the constables took one of the parcels and told Modi to pay the remaining cash and collect it later. The next day, another Rs one lakh was paid.

“Modi approached senior officers and told them about the incident. The SI and constables were questioned and it was found that they were trying to extort money from Modi. They were suspended and a detailed enquiry has been ordered.  Also, it is being investigated how they got information about the employees carrying parcels containing jewels in an autorickshaw,” said Additional Commissioner of Police (West) Charan Reddy.

Man kills father over affairs

The RMC Yard police arrested a man on Saturday for murdering his father. The victim, Gilbert Correya, 76, a resident of Peenya, was found with a mobile cord on his neck at his house on February 23. His son, Jameson Correya, 41, a resident of Chikkabidirakkallu in Nagasandra, confessed to the crime, police said. The murder came to light when the domestic help came to the house.

Gilbert worked for a private firm and became a realtor after his retirement. Jameson told the police he killed his father because he had not given any share of his property to his sons and had affairs with women. Gilbert had gifted some land to his lover and had even arranged her daughter’s wedding, police said. He had neglected his wife and had not ensured treatment when she was ill. Gilbert’s wife died a year ago, police said.

When the woman stopped her affair, he went after another woman. On February 22, Jameson came to Gilbert’s house around 5.30 pm and berated him on seeing his lover there. Jameson hit his father who collapsed. He strangled him, placed a mobile cord across his neck, poured coriander powder all over the body and vanished, police said. “As he came out of the house, he got a call from his wife, who was at church and joined her there. He did not show any emotions for two days and we detained him for interrogation as we grew suspicious,” DCP (North) T R Suresh told Deccan Herald.
