The speaker at the other end introduced himself as ‘Murder Manikandan’ and demanded that the realtor pays ’50 lakh to meet ‘urgent expenses’. The realtor politely asked Manikandan to call him later on his mobile phone instead of calling from the constable’s phone and immediately lodged a complaint with Union home minister Rajnath Singh’s office.
