"The chargesheet, which runs into thousands of pages, lists the evidences against the accused," the police official said, adding, "The vital documents attached to the chargesheet include papers related to the land deal along with the payment proof. It also includes statement of the witnesses."
The accused have been booked under IPC sections 384 (extortion), 386 (extortion by putting a person in fear of death or grievous hurt) and 387 (putting a person in fear of death or grievous hurt, in order to commit extortion) at the Thane Nagar police station.
