New Delhi: Delhi Police's Special Cell has busted an extortion racket being operated from within the Mandoli jail premises. Police have arrested two henchmen of a gang before they were allegedly going to execute a spare of murders to establish supremacy in Ghaziabad.

"While lodged in jail, the accused has been charged twice. Once in an extortion case and once, in an attempt to murder case," said a senior police officer.
