Inspired by crime shows on television, three men hatched a conspiracy and demanded ransom from a businessman after threatening him to kill his son in southeast Delhi, but were arrested, police said Thursday.
The three were inspired by crime shows, police said.
On January 30, the complainant reported that when he reached near Palla in Faridabad, two bike-borne men broke the window glass of his car and fled the spot. After some time, he received a phone call from an unknown number wherein the caller demanded ransom of Rs 30 lakhs.
As part of investigation, CCTV footage of the area was scanned and technical surveillance was also mounted, he said.
Based on a tip-off, police apprehended three persons on Sunday, he added.
