Srinagar, Sep 29, 2022- The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday busted a honey trap extortion racket in Srinagar in which influential persons were targeted by the gang, official said.

Srinagar police had received a complaint from a government official that he had been duped of Rs 8 lakh through extortion.

Three persons, Ajay Ganai, his wife Shaista and their friend Jehangir Dar were running the racket, and had blackmailed many people from whom they had collected Rs 40 lakh as extortion money.
