Tejasvi Surya’s phone is used for extortion
Police in Bengaluru are looking into a report that LS Tejasvi Surya, the MP for Bangalore South, had his phone number abused to extort cash and jewellery.
V Bhanu Prakash, Surya’s personal secretary, reported the incident to the South CEN Crime police station. His phone is usually with Prakash because Surya is still quite busy. He answers the phone and alerts the MP.
Prashant Korat, the leader of the Gujarat BJP Yuva Morcha, got a call on July 1 from Surya’s number. Money and gems were demanded by the caller.
