Man Masterminds Fake Cop Plot to Extort Money from Friend

A 27-year-old man from Mankhurd, Maharashtra, orchestrated a scheme involving fake police officers to extort Rs 3.32 lakh from his accountant friend. The Mankhurd police recently arrested all 10 individuals involved in the crime, including five members of the National Crime Investigation Bureau (NCIB), a Pune-based NGO dedicated to combating crime.

The main accused, Abdul Hameed Shaikh, extorted the money from his 44-year-old friend, Yashwant Ramchandra Chalke, in August of last year. Abdul Hameed enlisted the help of the five NCIB members to pose as Crime Branch officers and conduct a raid at Yashwant's office. They initially coerced Yashwant into paying Rs 32,000 under the threat of arrest and later staged Abdul Hameed's arrest to pressure Yashwant into giving Rs 3 lakh for his release.

The police arrested Abdul Hameed and the five NGO members, along with four other conspirators, including Abdul Hameed's father and a beauty salon owner acting as an intermediary. All 10 individuals have been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code. Yashwant reported the incident to the police in December, leading to the uncovering of the plot.
