In a joint operation by the Delhi Police and the National Investigation Agency (NIA), a man who posed as an NIA official to extort money was apprehended and subsequently arrested. This comes after a woman registered a complaint against him for having duped her.

According to officials, the accused had several fake profiles on social media and matrimonial websites. He was allegedly in relationships with multiple women.

He extorted money in the name of the NIA. Additionally, he took money from common people to “help them using his influence as an NIA officer”.

The accused has been identified as Netik Rawat. He is from Almora in Uttarakhand. His father was a sub-inspector in the Intelligence Bureau. He retired from service in 2016.

Netik Rawat is in his mid-20s. He completed his Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Delhi University in 2015. He has been living in Delhi since 2009 and in Laxmi Nagar area of the city since October 2019.
