Chhattisgarh Police have arrested a 42-year-old man who was posing as a Naxalite and extorting an automobile dealer in Raipur. Raipur Senior Superintendent of Police Ajay Kumar Yadav on Saturday told The Pioneer that Doppa Ravi Kumar, who hails from Andhra Pradesh, was posted as a Home Guard at Visakhapatnam. On April 8, the police lodged a case of extortion and criminal intimidation under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) following a complaint from the victim, Arvinder Singh Anand. Based on an analysis of call detail records (CDR), police nabbed him from the Raipur railway station. After being interrogated, the accused told the police that he made an extortion call to the trader posing as a Naxalite and asked him to give Rs 10 lakh or face dire consequences. Police seized a mobile phone and a button knife from him.
