A teenage girl was blackmailed by a person, who has sent her objectionable photos on WhatsApp and has demanded Rs 32 lakh
failing which he threatened to upload them on various social networking sites.Seeking action against the culprit, the girl’s father, a 44-yrear-old businessman, had approached the police and filed a formal complaint.
After a week, the girl got a message again from another mobile number stating, “You played with me. Now see FB post. If you again block this number I will inform your parents.” The message also threatened the girl with dire consequences.“It appears that someone known to the girl or her family members are behind the act, as the miscreant has also got the phone number of the girl’s mother and texting her thinking that the girl is using the number,”the police said, refusing to divulge more information.
