The accused threatened the victim of dire consequences if he revealed the matter to anyone, and asked him to arrange the remaining amount.Following a complaint, a case was registered at the Sadar Police Station.

During the police probe, the accused revealed that Mohit used to work as a tourist guide in Jaipur about 09 years ago, he went to work in a disco, where he met Ibrahim Sheikh, the owner of Tehelka channel.

Due to his good command of the English language, he along with Ibrahim Shaikh started conducting sting operations on people of good status in Mumbai. It returned to Jaipur after the lockdown due to Covid in the year-2020, police said.
