MUMBAI: A probe into the death by suicide of a woman, a movie struggler and who worked as an escort in Jogeshwari (W) last week has found that the two accused arrested for abetment and extortion had claimed to be from an organization âNational Crime Bureauâ and were not NCB officers nor did they hold NCB ID cards.The Amboli police that registered a suo-motu FIR has seized the identity cards (National Crime Bureau) that they used to threaten the 25-year-old victim, a West Bengal resident, who ended her life on December 23 after paying around Rs 8 lakh out of the Rs 20 lakh ransom that they demanded from her to not trap her in a case of drugs and escort service.Police probing the case learned from the duo, Suraj Pardeshi (38) and Pravin Valinbe (35), that they knew how the police raids were carried out. But they did not reveal whether they had been involved in similar offences in the past. âWe are trying to gather information on whether there are any such cases where the gang has extorted money from any other women or high profile people. The exact modus operandi and the total number of people they blackmailed and extorted will be known once the three absconding accused are caught,â said an Amboli police officer.The entire fiasco for the victim began after she partied at a hotel on December 20 and received a call from Pardeshi, who informed her that an NCB team was going to raid the hotel on the basis of a tip-off received that an escort service is run in the hotel and she is the prime suspect. âThe duo and the three wanted accused are suspected to be a police informant. The accused gets details of the victims through people known to them or they may be keeping a track of people by visiting hotels,â said the officer.The victim ended her life three days after she was blackmailed and threatened for Rs 20 lakh ransom. She was a struggler and was trying to get an opportunity in films. âShe got into escort service and Pardeshi knew about it which he tipped off to his gang members to extort,â said the police.
