Remember Ladies vs Ricky Bahl? The movie starring Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles, where Ranveer plays a conman who cheats women by promising that he would marry them? Well, it looks like we have a real life Ricky Bahl amongst us. According to a report by The Indian Express, police arrested a 34-year-old man on Thursday for allegedly duping women by promising that he would marry them and later threatening them by saying that he would post their obscene videos if they do not give him money. The report quoted police as saying that this man has been doing it since 2011.

According to the police, the man who goes by many names including Yogesh and Sameer Garg has cheated about 15 women close to their 30s of more than Rs 50 lakh over the last one year. The case came to light when a woman went missing with her son a few days back. After this, the victim’s brother approached police with the complaint. The complainant told police that his sister had uploaded her profile on a matrimonial site where she had come in contact with one Yogesh alias Sameer Garg. He said he suspected that Garg was behind their disappearance. Police then lodged a case and started tracking the accused’s phones.

“On September 5, police managed to zero in on Garg at New Delhi Railway Station. The victim said the accused had lured her on the pretext of marriage and taken her to Vaishno Devi. Later, he took her to Goa saying he would introduce her to his parents,” DCP (Shahdara) Nupur Prasad was quoted saying by IE.

The woman who is a teacher told police that Garg had extorted Rs 3 lakh from her by allegedly making videos of her and threatening to upload them on social media. Garg told police that his entire con was inspired by the Bollywood movie Ladies vs Ricky Bahl.
