In a rather queer situation the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s son Pankaj Singh received an extortion call.
As per media reports, Pankaj Singh, who is himself a BJP MLA from Noida, got a demand of Rs 10 lakhs.
Incidentally, police sources said that the message was sent by Ali Budesh Bhai, who had earlier sent similar extortion threats to several BJP MLAs.
A complaint in this regard has been made by the Union Minister’s son and accused person is one who claimed to be Ali Budesh Bhai.
Police have stepped up security of the Pankaj Singh and are reviewing the situation.
This comes after the Uttar Pradesh Police had formed a three-member SIT to probe the extortion threats to over 22 BJP MLA s in the state.>
