A rape case against self-proclaimed sugar daddy Lakhinder Vohra, a former Nest Seekers International broker, was tossed Wednesday morning, the New York Daily News reported.

Vohra was accused of raping a woman he met on Seeking Arrangement, an online dating service that connects wealthy men with younger women, a charge prosecutors said they could not prove. They subsequently moved to dismiss charges against him in Manhattan Criminal Court.

“My reputation has been tarnished,” Vohra told the Daily News, declining to comment further outside the courthouse.

Vohra’s attorney, Mike Saint-Pre, told the Daily News that the accusation was “all about extortion.”

“He was fired. He lost a lot,” Saint-Pre’s co-counsel, Arkady Bukh, told the Daily News.

Nest Seekers scrubbed their website of any mention of Vohra earlier this year, removing his bio from the site.

Vohra was looking at up to 25 years in prison for charges that included first-degree rape, attempted criminal sex act and sex abuse gone forward. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
