Mumbai, May 17: Technology is surely a man's best friend, but in this case, the technology turned out to be Rajasthan Police's 'Facebook' best friend.


Working as a DJ in a Mumbai hotel, 21-year-old Shikha Tiwari, aka DJ Adaa, was recently arrested by Special Operations Group (SOG) from Rajasthan after she ran away with a whopping Rs 1 crore to Mumbai.

The cops were able to nab the young DJ after she went live on her Facebook account making it easier for them to track her location.

The 21-year-old DJ was being tracked by SOG since December 2016 after her name cropped up for more honey-trapping cases.

Shikha was a part of a blackmailing gang, a gang which used to target high-profile real estate agents, doctors etc. Around 33 people have been arrested from the gang, which included five girl members as well. The racket was able to shell out around Rs 20 crore from people who fell into their traps.

Sunit Soni, a Jaipur-based doctor, met Shikha when she visited his clinic for a hair-transplant appointment. Shikha befriended Soni and got closer to him.

After sometime, the couple went to Pushkar for a trip where Shikha scared him off with a false rape allegation and demanded Rs 2 crore. She threatened him to go to the police after he denied giving her the money.

Shikha lodged an FIR against him after the doctor denied falling into her trap. The doctor was arrested and kept behind bars for 78 days after being acquitted. On December 24, 2016, the doctor filed an official complaint against Shikha.

The doctor then decided to settle the case with the 21-year-old DJ and gave her Rs 1 crore and Rs 5 lac. Shikha fled the scene and went to Mumbai thinking she won't be caught, but her addiction of social media took her down.

She went live on Facebook while she was DJ-ing at a Mumbai hotel and made it easier for Rajasthan police to nab the lady after five long months of search.
