On Monday, a female disc-jockey was arrested in Mumbai in connection with a high-profile sex and extortion racket. The gang used to honey-trap and blackmail wealthy businessman, doctors and builders. The woman, who was arrested, was identified as DJ Shikha, and she was involved with the Rajasthan-based gang that used to blackmail people for money.
Their latest victim was a wealthy doctor from Jaipur. Shikha was introduced to Dr Sunit Soni for hair transplant, and in no time, she gained his sympathy. Shikha said that she was under depression and even convinced him to take a trip with her to Pushkar. And Dr Soni, who fell for her plan, booked a room in a resort in Pushkar. The woman filmed him in the sexual acts, and as soon as the doctor left for Jaipur, she called him again under the pretext of falling sick.
It was then when the doctor got a call from two of the gang-members, who demanded a whopping Rs 15 crore from him. And after he denied, a police complaint was filed against the doctor under charges of rape, and he had to spend 78 days in jail.
After his arrest, Rs 1 crore was paid to the gang, and Shikha immediately took her case back after she received her amount. She was paid Rs 5 lakh out of the 1 crore. She then left Jaipur and went to Mumbai and formed a musical group called ‘DJ Ada’. While the police managed to arrest 32 members of the gang, Shikha aka Anikta was still missing. And it was then a location update on her Facebook account that led to her arrest in Mumbai. She has now been brought back to Jaipur for investigations.
