The police have arrested a man from Malappuram for allegedly blackmailing a 16-year-old girl with her nude photos and videos.
The Kalpakancheri police arrested Parappanangadi native Naheem, 25, for demanding gold ornaments from the Plus One student by threatening to expose her compromising visuals, which he recorded during video chatting.
The two met through Facebook around four months ago and grew close, according to reports. They used to engage in video chats and have intimate moments on the accused's insistence.
Naheem then started blackmailing the girl with the photos and video, which he had apparently recorded, saying he would sent into her relatives and friends if she doesn't give him her gold ornaments.
The girl stopped using her cell phone to avoid Naheem. However, the accused started calling on house's landline connection. The incident came to light when one of her parents answered Nahell's call and confronted her. The parents then informed the matter to Childline workers who counselled her.
The Kalpakancheri police arrested Naheem from his residence in Parappanangadi on the basis of the Childline report and charged him under POCSO Act. The accused was produced before the Tirur court and remanded to police custody.
