A day after two men were arrested for allegedly posing as journalists and threatening a shop owner, the Vadodara police Friday arrested two more members of the gang from the city.
The two arrested today were identified as Mayur Raulji (36) and Deepak Kandoi (27). The Makarpura police picked them up from their residences after getting a tip-off in the afternoon.
"They were part of the four-member gang that threatened Manish Agarwal, owner of a sweets shop on Tarsali, and demanded Rs 10,000 from him," sub-inspector Balvantsinh Bambhania, who is investigating the case, said.
The police had arrested Vijay Parmar (23) and Nilesh Pattani (32) on Thursday after Agarwal informed them. "The four identified themselves as journalists of Sardar News, which does not exist. They told Agarwal that he was using gas from his domestic connection for commercial purpose and demanded money. They threatened to file a complaint with the district supply officer if he did not give them money," Bambhania said.
