HYDERABAD: Around five miscreants threatened a former police commissioner’s daughter and tried to extort Rs 50 lakh from her. One of the accused is known to the victim.

Days after the Punjagutta police registered criminal cases, a special team of police allegedly detained three suspects and questioned them in connection with the offence.  Sources said that the complainant, a 60-year-old woman, who is the daughter of former IPS officer S Vijayarangan Naidu, identified the detained suspects who kidnapped her.

“The detained took the woman to Vijayawada where they demanded a ransom of Rs 50 lakh. In fear, the victim consented to provide an amount. She immediately transferred Rs 10 lakh to an account of an unknown person,” police said.

Even after the victim was let off, the miscreants used to call and harass her for the remaining `40 lakh. “We will also recover the amount and will write to bank officials to freeze the account of accused,” police said.
