As per the complaint with Surat’s Katargam police, 20-year-old BBA graduate Rashmin (name changed) was looking for a job or business opportunity after finishing his graduation. His father who was in the dairy business and some months ago sold it for Rs1.5 crore.
His friends came to know of the deal and they decided on a plan to blackmail him of the money.
How the blackmail plan was hatched
The youth’s friend Jaydeep Tank, a resident of Katargam’s Lalit Park, hatched a plan with some of his friends who were also anti-social elements.
In all, the 10 men slowly befriended the victim. They then told him of a plan to enter the sanitizer business as it was in demand due to COVID. They called him to a shop to discuss the plan and when he reached there the men took turns to rape and molest the youth and then shot a video of the same.
They then blackmailed the youth and threatened to make the video viral. In all, they extorted Rs1.26 crore over a period of time from the youth. They also forced him to buy seven mobiles and an expensive watch.
The youth continued to give in to the blackmail afraid of the consequence of his rape video going viral. Recently they asked him for Rs30 lakh. In the meantime, his father realised that the money from the sale of the business had gone missing.
Unable to bear it, the son told his father about the same who then approached the police.
