  • 'You'll meet the same end as Moosewala', extortionists threaten Ludhiana bizman

New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) Delhi Police have arrested two persons for allegedly threatening a Ludhiana-based businessman in the names of gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar, an official said on Wednesday.

The arrested persons have been identified as S. Singh (29) and A.A. Khan (24), both residents of Chhattisgarh.

Furnishing the details, K.P.S. Malhotra, DCP, IFSO, Special Cell, said that on June 12, the cyber police station of Ludhiana contacted the IFSO unit and sought help in tracing the accused persons.

The case was registered based on a complaint filed by a Ludhiana-based businessman, who alleged that he was receiving threat calls from some unknown international and Indian phone numbers since June 4.

"The callers, who identified themselves to be from the notorious Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gangs, threatened him to pay a ransom of Rs 10 lakh. They also threatened him that in case he fails to pay the amount, he will meet the same fate as slain Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala," the DCP said.

The Punjab Police informed Delhi Police that the location of one of the phone numbers was traced to Delhi, and that the accused were changing their locations frequently.

Acting on the tip-off, Delhi Police followed the leads obtained through technical surveillance and digital footprints.

The user of the said mobile number was traced to Sector 22 in Gurugram from where he was subsequently apprehended along with another accused.

The duo was produced before a local court which handed over their custody to Punjab Police.
