Bengaluru: Relatives of a woman were reportedly arrested for secretly filming her private moments with her boyfriend and blackmailing her.
Two relatives of a Bengaluru woman, identified as Usha and Suresh, were arrested on Monday, an IANS report said. The accused were blackmailing the victim for Rs 25 lac after clandestinely filming her private meetings with her boyfriend, police were quoted as saying.
As per the police, the woman had met her lover in a hotel on the outskirts of Bengaluru twice, and the accused, who knew about this, had fixed a secret camera in the hotel room and recorded their private moments.
The accused had later sent the video to the victim after a few days on Whatsapp. They had called her up and blackmailed her to give them Rs 25 lac, threatening her that if she failed to pay up, they would make her video viral, police said.
When the woman did not give the money, Usha claimed that she had got the video from someone on her mobile. Usha tried to scare her by telling her that the person who had sent the video had threatened to make the CD of the private video and send it to her family members.
Unable to take the pressure, the victim had approached the Bengaluru police, who nabbed the accused.
