Jaipur: Jawahar Nagar police in Kota arrested four people including two women for honey trapping a retired RAS officer and demanding Rs 3 lakh for not lodging a bogus case of rape against him. The victim, Ramswaroop Gwalera, approached the police and lodged an FIR in November last year following which an investigation was launched into the allegations. The accused were identified as Firoj Mazi, Parveen, Chandani alais Muskan and Mannu Baig alias Ifran. They were produced before a magistrate on Sunday. The victim, Ramswaroop Gwalera, is also an astrologer. His domestic help – a woman named Chandani alais Muskhan, told her friend, Parveen about it and they hatched a plan to blackmail him with the help of their husbands. When the victim was alone at home on November 24, Chandani asked him to read her palm. When Ramswaroop was holding the woman’s hand, the three other accused came there and started accusing him of attempting to rape Chandni. They then took some photographs. They demanded Rs 3 lakh from the retired officer and left. Chandni again called a few days later and threatened that she would register an FIR against him if the money was not paid. After Ramswaroop Gwalera approached the police, the four were arrested for blackmailing.
