Three arrested for blackmailing Paytm chief

An extortion bid and a threat to leak out "some photos and personal financial details" of Paytm Founder Vijay Shekar Sharma, have led to the arrest of Sonia Dhawan, the corporate communications vice president, at Paytm. Two others, her husband Rupak Jain and an admin person Devendra Kumar have also been arrested by the local police.

The fourth accused Rohit Chomal is on the run even as the UP Police has left for Kolkata to nab him.

In an interaction with Moneycontrol, Ajay Shekhar Sharma, Senior Vice President at Paytm, said that it all started around 11 am on September 20 when Vijay Shekhar Sharma received a call from a Thailand-based number while he was in Japan.
