On receiving the complaint, the phone number from which the threat was received was put under surveillance and one of accused, Mustakim Khan (33), was arrested, Gurgaon police PRO Subhash Bokan said.

During interrogation, Khan revealed that he was lured by Fiza to make the call and promised him Rs 20 lakh. On Khan's instance, the woman nurse was arrested, the official said.

Investigation revealed that the woman, who had worked under the doctor, had planned to make the threat as she wanted the money to get admission in a medical college," Bokan said.
