Sachdev was arrested after a woman levelled several charges against him including that of criminal extortion and criminal confinement before the Delhi Commission for Women.

Sanjay Sachdev, owner an NGO called “Love Commandos” has been arrested by Delhi police on Tuesday for extorting money from couples. The NGO claims to unite couples whose parents are opposed to their relationship.

As per the information given by the DCW, when the DCW officials including the Chairperson Swati Maliwal, inspected the shelter home on Tuesday there were four couples residing there, all below the age of 25. “Eight men and women were confined there. Their documents were taken, and they weren’t allowed to leave the premises. The NGO extorted money from them, physically assaulted the couples and even forced the men to consume alcohol,” said Maliwal.

“They also misbehaved with the women residents. Our team immediately contacted Central district DCP Mandeep Randhawa and an FIR was lodged and the ‘Love Commandos’ founder was arrested,” she added.

A case has been registered in the Paharganj Police station under section 342 (wrongful confinement), section 384, (theft), section 506 (criminal intimidation), section 509 (insulting modesty of woman) and section 34 (criminal act done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) and the statement of the woman, her partner and three other couples residing in the shelter home.

According to the DCW, the owner would himself get drunk at night and would force the boys to get drunk. He would also unleash his dogs on the residents in order to threaten them. One couple alleged that they were not allowed to leave even after their families contacted them saying they want to welcome them back. The NGO “Love Commandos” had gained popularity after its owner Sanjay Sachdev appeared on Amir Khan’s show Satyamev Jayate.
