Odisha Honeytrap Kingpin Archana Nag Had Penchant For The Good Life; Know Her Story

Bhubaneswar: The journey of honeytrap kingpin, Archana Nag, from Kesinga to Odisha capital is nothing short of a Bollywood potboiler interspersed with a lot of sleaze and mystery. The grand life included a three-storey bungalow in Satya Vihar here with extensive interiors, expensive vehicles, four dogs and a horse, which she along with his husband Jagabandhu Chand built in around four years.

According to police sources, the 26-year-old moved to Bhubaneswar to pursue integrated law after completing her school and college education at native Kalahandi district. That was in 2015. While police are not sure if Archana completed the course, she had a penchant for the good life and allegedly took the ‘illegal’ and immoral’ route to make a quick buck and lead a flamboyant lifestyle.

Initially, she worked at a private security firm and then allegedly ran a sex racket under the guise of a beauty parlour at Baramunda in the city. Archana and Jagabandhu’s paths soon crossed and driven by the desire to get rich quick, they found their calling in sextortion. He used to run a grocery store in Balasore district. The duo got married in 2018 and they started entrapping the rich and famous. Jagabandhu started developing contacts with politicians, industrialists and businessmen by introducing himself as a prominent member of a particular party. He and Archana would click photos with them and after, luring them into their trap, shoot intimate videos through spy cameras and blackmail them.

She also employed WhatsApp video chat to good effect.

At least two ministers, including one from western Odisha, a senior BJP leader also from western Odisha, a former MLA, a veteran BJD leader, and some bureaucrats allegedly fell victim to the racket.
