Bengaluru: A local court on Monday extended police custody of V Nagaraj aka Bomb Naga  for three more days for further investigation and probe with regards to the three extortion cases filed against him related to money-laundering.


“Chief Magistrate Jyothishree provided three more days to complete the interrogation process on V Nagaraj on the money-laundering case and on the extortion case against him” Bengaluru Deputy Commissioner of Police, East, Ajay Hilory said.

Bomb Naga along with his two sons Gandhi and Shastri were arrested by Karnataka police on May 11 from Arcot in Tamil Nadu’s Vellore district and were brought to Bengaluru on May 12.

Further scrunity will be made on the extortion made by him of Rs 8 crore from three businessmen-cum-industrialists who approached him in November for exchanging the banned notes with new notes, which he did not give them,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police, West, M.N. Anucheth on the occasion.

The three victims – Muniraju, Kalyan and Chandrakumar – filed separate complaints on May 21 with the Kengeri police station, alleging that Nagaraj and his sons had threatened them with a pistol, assaulted them and extorted the money after calling them to meet at a designated spot to launder the money.


“Nagaraj and his two sons have extorted Rs 3.8 crore from Kalyan, Rs 2.5 crore from Muniraju and Rs 1.75 crore from Chandrakumar on the pretext of converting the old notes into new ones as they were unaccounted,” said Anucheth.
