Surat police have arrested seven youths in Amroli on Saturday night for allegedly blackmailing a girl. Among them are two girls who are arrested.
They are college friends and had come to meet Maitry Kosambiya whom they began to threaten after a while. Maitry’s uncle then called police. She had come to her uncle’s house on Saturday at Rajput Faliya to seek his help as her friends were blackmailing her since long, sources informed. Police recovered suspected drugs from one of the cars of the accused youths.
The victim was avoiding them as they started blackmailing her. However, the accused were able to trace her and reached the house of Hitendra Bakrola (where the girl has come to seek help of her uncle) in Mercedes and Skoda Fabia cars.
Seeing the situation going out of hand, the victim’s uncle informed police, who detained the youths. Their vehicles were searched and police found a suspected drug in Skoda Fabia car. It has been sent for examination to a forensic laboratory. Preliminary examination has revealed that the youths were carrying charas, sources claimed.
Primary investigation has revealed that one of the accused girl is the daughter of a Mumbai-based businessman and she had brought the drugs from there. Whereas another girl stays in Pune and she was abandoned by her family for her allegedly bad habits.
Police investigation revealed that the youths were drug addicts and did the blackmailing for drugs only. Police also claims that these youths are not the mastermind and that there is someone else behind them. Investigation is still going on in this case.
