A businessman in Kothrud reportedly received an extortion call on Saturday evening from Santosh Jadhav, a criminal associated with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.

According to the information received, the businessman, who owns an excavation and earthmovers business, received a call from an individual claiming to be Santosh Jadhav. Jadhav was allegedly involved in the Sidhu Moose Wala murder case. The caller threatened the businessman, stating, "Do you remember the Sidhu Moose Wala murder? I am Santosh Jadhav speaking, and we have received a contract of ₹15 lakh to kill you. How much will you give to save your life? We will shoot you if you do not provide the money."

Furthermore, the caller threatened to harm the businessman's family, including women and children, if he failed to pay ₹50,000 as extortion. The businessman promptly contacted the police and filed a complaint.

The crime branch has since detained two individuals in connection with the incident, and the case is currently under investigation.
