The lawyer was in his Bandra office in the afternoon, when the incident took place. Two men entered his office with a bouquet. One of the accused, who identified himself as Azad, handed over the bouquet to Mehta.
The bouquet had a bullet inside it. He then gave Dipesh a letter. In the letter it was written that if he did not hand over Rs 2 crore within 24 hours, they would kill him.
After the accused left, Mehta went to Bandra police station and lodged a complaint against the two men. He also provided the two-line letter, given to him by the accused, and CCTV footage, to the cops.
The case of extortion has been filed against the two accused and hunt for both the men are on.
