Ghaziabad: A man posing as a journalist was
arrested along with a police constable here for blackmailing a
health official by claiming that they had a CD that showed him
in a compromising position with a woman, police said.

Ravi Shukla and constable Vinesh Kumar, presently posted
in Agra, went to Additional Chief Medical Officer Rameshwar
Dayal`s residence on Friday and demanded Rs 5 lakh from him,
they said.

Dayal, however, called his neighbours for help following
which the duo were beaten up and later handed over to the
police, SP (City) JK Shahi said, adding that the accused have
confessed to their crime.

woman.
