Four men, including a policeman, were arrested for allegedly extorting Rs 15 lakh from a man after threatening to implicate him in a false human trafficking case, police said.
The incident took place in outer Delhi's Paschim Vihar area, the police said.
Apart from the arrested police officer, the other three accused -- Happy, Harry and Ankush -- are travel agents, they added.
The arrested policeman, identified as Dharmendra Dhangi, was posted with west district's vigilance unit.
Last month, when he went to meet him the two other accused arrived there posing as Crime Branch officers, they added.
The two accused blackmailed the man and extorted Rs 15 lakh from him after threatening to lodge a false human trafficking case against him, the police said.
Later, the victim filed a complaint and subsequently, the police arrested the three travel agents who led them to Dhangi, the police said.
The police are looking for another policeman who was also involved with the four accused.
