Cops ‘held’ for extortion

Burdwan, Sept. 8: Local people “arrested” three policemen from Burdwan police station when they went to collect “extortion” money from an illicit liquor den at Natunganj.

The policemen were kept tied to a lamp post for about two hours till senior officials arrived to rescue them.

Nityananda Garai, Naba Kumar De and Indison Shah went to Nutanganj to collect the money without knowing that the den was demolished by their colleagues last night.

Once held by the mob, the policemen confessed that they used to extort money.
