Gujarat Police arrests Superintendent of Police in extortion and loot case

The Gujarat CID (crime) team probing the bitcoin extortion case has arrested Amreli Superintendent of Police Jagdish Patel, whose role in the alleged kidnapping of Surat-based builder Shailesh Bhat and extorting of 200 bitcoins worth Rs. 12 crore from him was under the agency's scanner.

While opposing Patel's bail plea, the probe agency cited several witnesses including victim Bhatt's business partner Kirit Paladiya, whose behaviour in the incident was seen as suspicious.
