A false se*xual abuse complaint was made against an Indian boyfriend in order to extort money from him.
In a blackmail scheme in which her boyfriend was the victim, police detained an Indian girlfriend.
The incident took place in Korba, Chhattisgarh.
According to reports, the woman falsely accused the victim of se*xual abuse in order to obtain Rs. 2 Lakh (£2,000) from him.
Mukesh Mahato, the perpetrator, and Indira Chandra, the victim, were both identified.
According to the reports, the couple dated for a while. But after arguing, they split up.
The unknown is the topic of the argument.
One day, Chandra called Mukesh and demanded Rs. 3 Lakh (£3,100), threatening to accuse him of se*xual abuse if he didn’t comply.
She filed a false complaint against Mukesh at the Rampur Chowki Police Station after he informed her that he was unable to give her that amount.
Calling Mukesh once more, the Indian girlfriend informed him that the police report had been made.
Mukesh gave Chandra Rs. 2 Lakh out of fear that he would be taken into custody and put in jail. After giving a statement, she subsequently withdrew her complaint.
Later, Chandra made another fictitious complaint against Mukesh. Officers reported the incident, but the woman refused to let an FIR be filed.
A police report could not be filed as a result.
She then called Mukesh once more and made a further demand for Rs. 1 Lakh (£1,000).
Mukesh taped a conversation he had with Chandra regarding a financial transaction because he thought Chandra, his ex-girlfriend, was orchestrating a blackmail scheme.
Mukesh brought the audio and video recordings to the Rampur Chowki Police Station and reported Chandra.
Police opened a case and looked into the situation. Indira Chandra was detained.
Blackmail plots are commonplace in India.
An Indian man was previously detained for extortion and blackmailing more than 100 women.
Sumit Jha, a 26-year-old resident of Noida, Uttar Pradesh, was named by police as the suspect.
Jha allegedly used to download women’s social media images and edit them before threatening to post the images online unless the women paid him money.
Their faces would be edited onto the bodies of nak*ed women.
Jha would then make up fake social media profiles and send the victims threatening messages, claiming he would post the nude photos unless they gave him money.
