Union Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh’s wife, Bharti Singh, has accused a man in Delhi of trying to blackmail her.
Reportedly, the Ghaziabad MP’s wife received phone calls from a relative’s friend named Pradip Chauhan, demanding Rs 2 crore.
According to police complaint, Mrs Singh has alleged that Chauhan recorded her conversation with him on August 6 and then threatened to post it on social media and asked for Rs 2 crore.
Mrs Singh has also told the police that Chauhan has a licensed revolver and has threatened to harm her family.
General Singh retired as army chief in 2012 and then joined the BJP.
