BENGALURU: The Subramanyanagar police on Saturday interrogated two people, including a founder of a women rights organisation, Bharathi Nayak, in an alleged honeytrap case. A 51-year-old businessman had filed a complaint before the police on Thursday alleging that he was extorted by one of his women employees and two others of Rs 5 lakh in a mall in Yeshwanthpur.

A senior police officer said Manikanth (name changed), a resident of Rajajinagar, had accused Nadiya, a sister of his employee; Bharathi Nayak and her son Sagar of extorting money from him. 
During interrogation, Bharathi and Sagar stated that the allegation made by Manikanth was baseless. “We have recorded the statement from the duo and are examining CCTV footage from Orion Mall. Efforts are on to nab prime accused Nadiya,” the police said. 

Nadiya and her sister Priyadarshini, who hail from Tamil Nadu, were living in RMC Yard. Nadiya had taken some money from Manikanth and failed to return it. When he asked her to repay the money, she managed to take a video of him in an intimate moment and started blackmailing him, Manikanth said in his complaint.
