4 cops nabbed for extortion


    JOINT police operatives nabbed four cops in an entrapment operation at the Baseco Police Community Precinct in Manila last Wednesday.

    The four were identified as Corporals Nickson B. Mina, Juan Carlo D. Guzman and Fransis Mikko G. Gagarin, and Pat Tom D. Hikilan, members of the beat patrol of Station 5 of the Manila Police District.

    They were arrested after receiving P200,000 in marked money from Alaysa M. Panansang, wife of Kelvie Kamid Panansang who was nabbed for violation of the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 last Nov. 12.

    Mrs. Panansang said the four cops demanded P500,000 for the release of her husband but ultimately lowered it to P200,000. – Cyra Corral
