He told cops that the duo even shot obscene videos and pictures to extort money. Son of a jeweller, the victim claimed that he had to steal jewellery, cash and other items from his house to give to the two women as they had threatened that they’ll upload the videos and pictures online and share it with his parents.
“A year ago, I had joined private coaching at Singhal Classes in Kacheri Ghat area, where Nitin Singhal and his sister Ruchi Singhal taught me. Later Ruchi and her divorcee sister Anjali (both in their mid 20s) befriended me. One day, they gave me a drug-laced drink and took objectionable pictures and videos while I was unconscious. Later, they showed me the pictures and threaten that they’d upload it on the web if I didn’t do as I was told,” he said.
“Initially, I stole Rs 4000 in cash from home, and subsequently Rs 10,000 and Rs 45,000 on two occasions. On several occasions, they even forced me to see hardcore porn and perform sexual acts with the two while their brother shot videos of the intimate act. I pleaded them to let me go and delete the videos, but they coerced me to steal my mother’s jewellery made of diamonds and gold.
Due to their pressure, I stole precious coins and metals from my grandmother’s lockers and gave it to the trio, after which they purchased a car, a two-wheeler, a fridge, an i-Phone 7, an air conditioner, a sofa, an electric chimney, a microwave oven, a water dispenser, a cooking gas stove, a printer, sunglasses, watches, stationery bikes and clothes worth Rs 50,000,” he claimed.
He said the two sisters had extorted money from other male students as well. They used to offer cigarettes, liquor to students who hailed from well-to- do families and trap them.
According to the victim’s father, “For the last few months, our son was in immense stress and hardly spoke to us. Meanwhile, we also observed that valuable and cash were missing from home. I reprimanded my servants and questioned them but was clueless. Later, I asked my mother to talk to my son and ask him if he was stealing the cash and the jewellery.”
According to the police, the accused trio was running a pub-like environment at the coaching centre inside their home. Station officer of Hariparvat, Jai Karan Singh said, “We have arrested Nitin Singhal while his two sisters are absconding. We have recovered a car, fridge, sofa, air conditioner and other items which were purchased from money extorted by abusing the boy.”
