Police dismiss reports of extortion call to Shahrukh

Posted by jahanzaibmemon on December 16, 2007

Mumbai, Dec 13: Police on Thursday dismissed reports in a section of the media that claimed Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan had received an extortion call for Rs two crore from gangster Bunty Pandey.

“Shahrukh has not recieved any such call,” said a senior officer from the crime branch.

Asked about interviews a person, claiming to be Pandey, has been giving to some television news channels since morning, the officer said “may be he is doing it just for cheap publicity. To become big in the gangland. Undue advantage is being taken of the media.”

Pandey was earlier aligned with the Chhota Rajan gang but later broke away and reportedly targets bollywood personalities for extortion.

Pandey’s name was in news recently after he gave an interview to a private news channel claiming to be behind the murder of NCP Corporator Devidas Chowgule in the neighbouring satellite city of Navi Mumbai.
