The gang of criminals was put out of action during an operation led by Inspector Mohes of the Force Crime Intelligence Unit (FCIU).

Farhaan Ruhoonauth denied any involvement in the case.

Azagen Pyneandee is also accused of extorting Rs 1 million from one of the members of this family in 2023. According to the victim, a 58-year-old civil servant, Azagen Pyneandee, had introduced him to a prostitute. A few months later, the complainant claims that the suspect showed up at his home and told him that the girl he had been having a good time with was a minor and that she intended to file a complaint against him.
