A 35-year-old scientist was honey-trapped and held hostage at a hotel in Noida by five persons, including a woman who alleged that she was a Bigg Boss contestant. The gang demanded Rs 10 lakh from the victim to free him.
Police said the scientist was associated with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). He was held hostage at an OYO hotel for an entire day.
The scientist, who is a resident of Sector 74, Noida was looking for massage parlours when he came into contact with Sunita. When he called the parlour number, he was asked to come to Logix City Centre.
As the victim reached the place, he was taken to Kunal Residency managed by OYO and held hostage in a room. Later, the kidnappers called his wife and demanded Rs 10 lakh. The man’s wife later approached the police, which in turn formed a team to nab the accused.
According to a report in Times of India, the woman accused has been identified as Sunita Gurjar alias Babli, whose Facebook profile claims she is a local BJP leader. The woman also uploaded photographs with Bigg Boss show host and actor Salman Khan on her social media accounts.
She has also claimed that she is a native of the same village as of Bigg Boss season 10 winner Manveer Gurjar. However, Manveer’s family has denied any relation with the woman.
Police arrested Sunita and three others on Sunday night from a hotel in Sector 41. Cops say they are also looking for two other accused who managed to flee from the spot.The gang used to rob people on the pretext of providing ‘massage service’. This is the second such gang to have been busted by police.
