Qadir was arrested from Delhi on Monday and produced before the Magistrate Court from where he has been sent to police remand for 4 days. Qadir’s husband and co-accused in the case Manish alias Virat Beniwal is currently absconding. Police say that raids are being conducted to find him.

Police said that Qadir has confessed to his crime and has been taken into remand. Efforts are being made to recover the money and goods he had taken from the victim. Her husband will also be found and arrested soon.

It was only after their interim bail was cancelled that an FIR was registered on November 26 at the Sector-50 police station against them, they said, and added that Qadir and Beniwal are residents of Shalimar Bagh in Delhi.

“Qadir has confessed to the crime and we have taken her on police remand to recover the money and other items that were taken by her from the victim under alleged pressure. Her husband and co-accused Manish alias Virat Beniwal will be arrested soon,” Sector-50 Station House Officer Inspector Rajesh Kumar.

In his complaint, Dinesh Yadav, who runs an advertising firm, said he got in touch with Qadir sometime ago and Beniwal was with her. He claimed that Qadir demanded ₹ 2 lakh for promoting his firm on her channel, and he paid the amount.

Qadir after a few days expressed her liking for him and said she wanted to marry him. They became good friends, according to the complaint.

“In August I along with Qadir and Manish went to a club to party. We booked a room there late at night. The next morning, when I woke up, Qadir asked me to hand over my bank cards and (smart) watch. She threatened to implicate me in a rape case,” the complainant said.

He claimed that “after this, they extorted more than ₹ 80 lakh and gift items from me”. “Later, I revealed everything to my father who took me to the police,” the victim said in his complaint.
