Two officials of the Delhi police have been suspended for their alleged role in running sextortion racket with the help of a girl.

According to sources, a departmental inquiry was initiated against the accused police personnel, identified as Constable Ankit posted at Nihal Vihar police station and Head Constable Mukesh posted with the PCR unit.

The duo ran the sextortion racket with the help of a girl who used to trap boys through a dating app. The police personnel had taken a room on rent where the girl would bring the victim boy, and later they would extort money from him.

The sextortion racket came to light on April 17 when a victim called up the police control room regarding extortion by two police personnel. Senior officials sent a team to record the testimony of the victim, a resident of Gurugram.

“The victim was terrified. He was with three of his friends. He told the police that he met a girl through dating app, Bumble. Both had been in touch for a week. The girl took him to a room where Rs 27,000 was extorted from him,” the sources said.

According to sources, the girl called the victim, Pandey to meet her at Peera Garhi crossing on April 16. Later, the girl took him to her room by e-rickshaw in ShivRam Park, Nihal Vihar taken on rent by the accused police personnel to trap boys.

The accused police personnel reached the room on receiving information from the girl. They told the boy that they received a PCR call that he had done something wrong with the girl. The victim was threatened that strict action would be taken against him. Later, they demanded money to sort out the matter, the sources said.

The accused cops took Rs 27,000 from the victim. They also threatened the boy with implicating him in a rape case if he disclosed about it to anyone.

However, the victim revealed about the incident to his friends and made a PCR call out of fear of being implicated in a false case. The act of the accused cops constituted gross misconduct, indiscipline, negligence towards their duties and also diminishing the image of Delhi Police, sources said.
