A team of Rajasthan Police busted an extortion racket in Jaipur on Saturday. This gang was blackmailing men with false rape allegations and made them bleed money. Police’s Special Operations Group (SOG) confirmed that this group extorted ₹ 12 – 15 crore from approximately 25 people.
Two Jaipur-based lawyers were also involved with this group. They used women to honey-trap their targets. They used to blackmail their targets for money. If any of them refused to pay, then they lodged fake rape case complaints against the targets.

A doctor from Jaipur actually had to spend 75 days in jail and also pay a sum of ₹ 1 crore to these miscreants for no reason at all.
