Verma has been accused of threatening a BJP leader and seeking money from him of in lieu of a sex video. Verma has also been accused of threatening the leader of leaking the video.

Although police is refuting that Verma called BJP worker Prakash Bajaj, the cops still took under arrest on Friday.

Speaking on the same, Verma revealed that because he had a sex video of Chhattisgarh PWD Minister Rajesh Muran, therefore he is being framed; as he had the video in a pen-drive and had nothing to do with CDs.
