Bhopal, February 15

Madhya Pradesh police have arrested two brothers from Rajasthan who allegedly shared a lewd clip during a video call with BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur and attempted to extort money, an official said on Tuesday.

Waris Khan (23) and Rabeen Khan (21) last week called Bhopal MP Thakur during which they allegedly broadcast a lewd video clip.

Seeing him, Thakur disconnected the call, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cyber ​​Cell) Amit Kumar said citing the Lok Sabha member’s complaint.

The defendant later allegedly shared an obscene video on Thakur’s cell phone and demanded money, Kumar said.

The police registered a case. A police team was dispatched to Rajasthan after the locations of the defendants’ mobile phones were traced to Bharatpur in the neighboring state, the official said.

After staying there for about a week, the police team arrested the two accused from a village in Bharatpur, he said.

The accused told police they used to call people “for fun” and extort money, the official said.

Police were taking the defendants to Bhopal, he said, adding that more details could come to light after questioning them.
