Three persons, including the mother of gangster Gagan Judge, were arrested on the charges of extortion, police officials said here today.

The alleged accused identified as Swaranjeet Kaur, a resident of Ferozepur; Harpreet Singh, a resident of Bhamba Landa village in Ferozepur district; and Amandeep Singh, a resident of Chuhar Chak village in Moga district; had come to collect extortion money from someone in Moga when they were arrested by the police.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Barjinder Singh Bhullar said an informer had given information that the trio was coming to collect extortion money here. "We arrested them on the spot and recovered two weapons from their possession," he said.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Gagan Judge, who is currently lodged in Amritsar jail, was operating an extortion racket from the jail. He used to make threat calls to the victims, while his associates collected the money on his behalf.

The police have booked six persons, including the gangster, under Sections 384 (extortion), 506 (criminal intimidation), 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Arms Act.

Gagan Judge was arrested by the Organised Crime Control Unit of the police in March this year. He was among the five suspects who robbed about 30 kg of gold ornaments from a branch of India Infoline Finance Limited on Gill Road in Ludhiana on February 17 this year.

Gagan Judge and his gang members were also involved in many other cases, including contract killing, attempt to murder, extortion and snatching.
