Chandigarh, June 14 (IANS) The Haryana Police on Sunday busted a gang which used to trick rich people into friendship with women and later extort money by threatening to register false rape cases against them.

Police said five people, including a woman and four men were arrested from Kurukshetra and nearby areas, 110 km from here.

Police recovered Rs.5.70 lakh cash, a revolver, live cartridges, some important documents and a fake police identity card from them.
