A trap was laid and Singh was arrested when he arrived to collect the ransom, they said. Raids were then conducted at possible hideouts of the accused and the woman was arrested from one among these, the officials added.

During interrogation, Parminder confessed to have committed more than five incidents of extortion in the last one month, the DCP said.

The accused mainly targeted old men of wealthy background, she said, adding that they would have a woman involved with the racket befriend the target and bring him to an accommodation rented by the accused in advance.

Once the woman and the victim were inside the apartment, other members of the racket would show up and threaten the victim of implicating him in a false rape case and extort him, the officer added.
