Namra Qadir, a Delhi based YouTuber, concocted a fake rape story to extort Rs 80 lakhs from a businessman, only to be arrested for her actions. With over 617k followers on YouTube, one would assume that a content creator would find positive and constructive ways to make money. However, Namra chose to act otherwise, and honey trapped a businessman to extort him on the tune of Rs 80 lakhs.
The incident came to the fore after the extortion victim Dinesh Yadav filed a complaint against her. As per the complaint, Dinesh connected with Namra who demanded Rs 2 lakhs from him to promote his advertising firm on her channel. He agreed to it and paid the sum.
Later, the two got closer and Namra expressed her liking for Dinesh. In August, Namra and Dinesh went to a club party, where they booked a room. The next morning, Namra asked Dinesh to handover his cards, his smartwatch, and threatened to implicate him in a rape case.
Namra, along with her husband, Manish, extorted Rs 80 lakhs and expensive gift items from Dinesh. It was only when Dinesh talked about the matter to his father, that a complaint was filed.
While Namra has been arrested after confessing to her crimes, her husband is absconding and efforts are on to trace him.
The Facts of the Matter
A Delhi-based YouTuber Namra Qadir, and her husband Manish, have been accused of honey trapping a businessman and extorting a whopping sum of Rs 80 lakhs by threatening to implicate him in a rape case. While Namra has been arrested, her husband is on the run, and efforts are on to arrest him.
The matter came to the fore after an interim bail filed by Namra was rejected, and a fresh FIR was filed against her on November 26, that Namra was arrested. Namra, and her husband Manish are residents of Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh.
Accused Connected Over Promotion Deal
The victim of the extortion was identified as Dinesh, an advertising firm owner. Namra and Dinesh connected with each other over a business proposition, where Namra asked for Rs 2 lakhs from Dinesh to promote his firm on her channel.
Dinesh agreed to the prospect, and paid her the decided sum. Meanwhile, Namra later expressed her liking for Dinesh and the duo stayed in touch. In August, Dinesh, along with Namra and her husband Manish, went to a club party.
Victim Gets Threatened
Later that night, they booked a room at a hotel, and in the morning that followed, Namra asked Dinesh to hand over all his cards, his smartwatch, and threatened him of being implicated in a rape case. Namra and her husband were able to extort Dinesh on the tune of Rs 80 lakhs, and other expensive gifts from him.
It was only when Dinesh told about his father about the situation, that a complaint was filed in the matter. After an interim bail was rejected, Namra was arrested by the police, and admitted to her actions.
Sector-50 Station House Officer Inspector Rajesh Kumar was quoted in a TOI report saying, “Qadir has confessed to the crime and we have taken her on police remand to recover the money and other items that were taken by her from the victim under alleged pressure. Her husband and co-accused Manish alias Virat Beniwal will be arrested soon.”
