In India, an English medium school, two ninth-grade children, along with a relative, threatened to intimidate a classmate of his own and took away an Extortion of Rs 3 lakh in the last 18 months.
According to reports, the father of the affected child has written a report to a police station in Kamothe, Mumbai, saying that two boys who studied his 15-year-old son in his class were intimidated in the last 18 months. Gold cash worth Rs 30,000 and a mobile phone worth Rs 20,000 were taken by them.
The two boys, together with their cousins, threatened the child that if he did not pay them, they would kill him and his family. According to a report lodged at the Kamothe police station, the schoolchildren are not involved in bullying but their relative is a criminal who also has ties to Mumbai underworld.
Due to daily threats and psychological stress, the child’s health started to deteriorate and his weight began to decline rapidly. Last week, while he was in the hospital for inspection and his phone was at home, his mother received a call from an unknown number on the phone and asked, ” have you done the work?”.
When the mother withdrew from the child, he was lying before but was eventually forced to tell the truth. Thus, the parents became aware of the actual culprits of home-burglaries during the last year and a half.
