Five persons have been charged with  cheating, extortion and harassing a woman by the District Crime Branch (DCB) in Vellore on Monday.

The SP of Vellore P Vijayakumar said one Bhuvaneswaran of Vellore had lodged a complaint against Gaja (alias) Gajarajan of Sathuvachari and four of his associates—Sasi Kumar, Devaprakasa, Ranjith and Arumugam.

Bhuvaneswaran stated that Gaja had enmity. He had lodged complaints against Gaja for threatening him. Following this, Gaja’s associates Ranjith and Sasikumar approached Bhuvaneswaran to sink their differences.

They also promised Bhuvaneswaran that Gaja would help him start a Tamil magazine and help him set up a printing press. Believing them, he gave  `1.50 lakh to Gaja a couple of months ago. But they failed to provide the machines, said the SP citing the complaint. Gaja dogged Bhuvaneswaran for the last few months. When he met Gaja recently and demanded the money, he threatened Bhuvaneswaran stating that he would morph his wife’s photographs  and upload them online.

Bhuvaneswaran lodged a complaint. A case was filed against the five under many sections under many charges.  Gaja and Sasikumar were arrested and remanded. The police were on the lookout for the three others. After the two were arrested, Gaja complained of chest pain and was admitted to the hospital. Sasikumar was remanded in the Vellore Prison for Men.
