Trapping men in False Rape cases and then looting them in order to settle cases has become extremely rampant today. One such case has been reported from Mumbai, where two women are among three were arrested on Thursday for allegedly blackmailing and extorting Rs 3.26 crore from a businessman from Kolhapur.
In 2019, a 64-year-old businessman was in Mumbai and had put up at a five star hotel in Andheri. Accused Lubna Wazir alias Sapna (47), Anil Choudhary alias Akash (42) and jeweller Manish Sodi (41) had struck up a friendship with him met him at his suite.
As reported by TOI, the police said that Sapna and Anil hurriedly left the hotel, leaving Monica in the room with the businessman, saying they had to rush out urgently for some time. This, said the police, was part of their conspiracy.
Just as they returned, Monica partly undressed and lay on the bed. One of the two women was used as a honeytrap to falsely implicate the businessman and blackmail him in a fabricated case of sexual assault, the police said. The officer told media,
As per plan, Sapna started to shoot a video of Monica in the state of undress with the businessman around. Sapna started to yell about a sexual assault on Monica. The businessman claimed innocence but the three threatened to call the police.
They demanded Rs 10 crore to settle the matter.
A series of extortion threats followed. The police said that the businessman ended up paying Rs 3.26 crore over a period of time. The extortion continued until recently, said the police. Recently, they demanded Rs 5 crore, and threatened to upload the video on social media. The officer said,
The businessman got suicidal and told his son to take care of his business. Due to his “unusual” behaviour, his son enquired what the matter was. The businessman told the son who approached the police.
Even after the businessman paid up, the threats to get him arrested continued with a video of him with the 42-year-old woman, Monica Bhagwan alias Dev Choudhary, who “played victim”. Monica is wanted by the police.
The police have recovered Rs 29 lakh, seven phones, gold worth Rs 9 lakh and two cars from the accused. The three were arrested while accepting Rs 17 lakh from the businessman, the police said.
- Often when such cases are reported to the police, the male victims are shamed for inviting women to their rooms
- However, why should morality become a yardstick, when both man and woman involved in an alleged consensual engagement, are adults?
- Firstly, men must be very careful of who they are acquainting with or inviting to their rooms; If you prefer to be very casual, be ready to face the music
- On the other hand, men who face such situations, must not pay up and immediately report the matter with all evidences to the police
- There will be some element of shaming in society and within the family, however, it will save you from a never ending extortion trauma on pretext of false rape case
