Delhi Man Threatens To Circulate Girl’s Private Pics As He Wanted Money For Protein Powder

Mumbai: A man allegedly tried to extort money from a 19-year-old woman he was previously in a relationship with by threatening to circulate her private photos, officials said.

He said he joined a gym recently and needed money to purchase imported protein powder and other supplements. Two people were arrested for attempting to extort money from the woman and her father.

According to the police, one of the accused—a teenager—was once in a relationship with the victim, but it ended. They claimed that to intimidate the 19-year-old, he had set up an anonymous social media handle.

“A 19-year-old woman filed a complaint with the cyber police station via the National Cybercrime Reporting Portal. She told the police that she had been receiving threatening messages on her social media platforms from an anonymous person,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (north) Manoj Kumar Meena said.

Meena stated, “She informed police that the accused was threatening to publish her personal photos if she did not pay money.”

According to the authorities, the accused alerted her father about the situation, and he had also received threats.

They added that upon the receipt of an official complaint, a formal complaint was filed, and an investigation was launched.

“Our investigative team discovered that Ashok Vihar was the place from which the phony ID was formed. The DCP stated that later on December 6, our team detained a man named Govind (22). According to Govind, the second accused, Ansh Sharma, was also detained that day.

According to the police, Sharma admitted after questioning that he had known the complainant since she was in sixth grade through mutual connections.

According to the police, both started communicating often on social media in 2020. They transferred the passwords to their personal Instagram accounts after falling in love virtually. But according to the cops, they broke up quickly.

After that, the accused allegedly went onto her social media accounts and, while scrolling through conversations, discovered some private images in a discussion.

“He emailed Govind those pictures that he had downloaded. Sharma started blackmailing the victim after setting up an anonymous social media account. The accused parties’ cell phones have been located and taken into custody, according to the DCP.

According to the authorities, Sharma’s cellphone included the victim’s private photo, and the anonymous social media account was located.

“Sharma told police that he had recently joined the gym. He was in need of money to purchase imported protein powder and other supplements for bodybuilding,” DCP Meena further said.
