    Two years of Demonetisation has left business 'cashless' accepts PM Modi's Gujrat. Instead of harassing business people, why don't this gangster Ravi Poojary call BJP politicians who are offering opposition leaders Rs 100 crores each?

    Business tycoons often take help of those elements when there is land deal or recovery of huge amount from Debtor at that time they don't think about future problems, But when they keep on harass for money then they will go to Police. there will not be sound if you clap in one hand.

    How he got the numbers of all family members that he can call them anytime ?

    There are several agents to provide contact numbers of target on commission basis or in return for some money! Often police too advise to pay up and close the matter...reason to believe that they are on payroll.

    It may not be difficult for police to check if these callers are actually Ravi Poojary or not since many of his men are in jail and may be some are out on bail. What I heard is, if you give these callers tough reply they get into rat hole!!! Its not easy to exort money with current law and order situation and police intelligence unless they are hand in glove.

    The extortionisits target only those who have lots of black money after doing their research; most pay up and keep quiet to avoid sleepless nights!!
