Mangaluru: Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar informed that four accused in connection with  honey trap case were taken into custody by the Surathkal police.

The arrested are Reshma alias Neema, a Beedi roller, Zeenath who works for an insurance company, Iqbal and Abdul Khader Naseef, who work as drivers.

Reshma and Zeenath contacted the victim on January 14. The victim who runs a transport business, was later invited to a house where Iqbal and Naseef assaulted and threatened the victim of filing a rape case against him.

The probe revealed that 5-6 people were involved in this racket and concluded that it is a case of a honeytrap.

There have been more such cases in the last 2-3 months and the police suspect the involvement of the arrested. The group is also found to be involved in illegal cattle transportation by contacting people from  Chennarayapatna.

He further asked apartment associations to collect details whenever renting the flats and inform the police if they observe any suspicious activity.
