Delhi YouTuber arrested for honey trapping businessman

Delhi Police has arrested a YouTuber who honey-trapped a businessman and looted Rs 80 lakh from him. This YouTuber named Namra Qadir had threatened to implicate the owner of a private company in a false case of rape.
Qadir was arrested from Delhi on Monday and produced in the Magistrate Court, from where he has been sent to police remand for 4 days. Qadir's husband and co-accused in the case Manish alias Virat Beniwal is currently absconding. Police say that raids are being conducted to find him.
Police said that Qadir has confessed to his crime and had been taken into remand. Efforts are being made to recover the money and goods he had taken from the victim. Her husband will also be found and arrested soon.
Namra Qadir is 22 years old and has more than 6.17 lakh subscribers on YouTube. A complaint was lodged against her by 21-year-old Dinesh Yadav of Badshahpur in August, but Qadir and her husband moved to the court seeking interim bail.
After the court rejected this petition, an FIR was registered against him on November 26 at the Noida Sector 50 police station. It was written in this report that Qadir and Beniwal are residents of Shalimar Garden in Delhi.
Dinesh, a businessman who runs an advertising firm, told the police that some time ago he came in contact with Qadir. Then husband Beniwal was also with her. Qadir asked for Rs 2 lakh to promote his business on his channel.
Dinesh told, 'After a few days, Qadir told me that he likes me and wants to get married. After that, we both became good friends. In August, I went to the club with Qadir and Beniwal, where they booked a room for the night. The next morning when I woke up, Kadir asked me for all the bank cards and my smartwatch. She threatened me that if I did not listen to her, she would implicate me in a false case of rape.
According to Dinesh, both of them together took more than Rs 80 lakh in money and gift items from him. When Dinesh told his father, he took him to file a complaint with the police.
