Jagatsinghpur: A youth has been arrested from Bhadrak for allegedly blackmailing a class-X girl of Jagatsinghpur district with her obscene photos.
The arrested has been identified as Laxmikant Das (20) of Atto village in Bhadrak district.
According to reports, the accused came in contact with the girl after dialing a ‘wrong number’. Later, he started making video calls to her frequently, during which he allegedly took some objectionable screenshots.
Being uncomfortable for having conversation with him, the girl stopped picking up his calls after some days. Laxmikant then sent the photos to the girl threatening her to upload those on social media and demanded Rs one lakh.
The girl informed her parents about the matter, following which her father lodged a complaint in this regard with Jagatsinghpur police. Acting on the complaint, cops have apprehended Laxmikant from Bhadrak.
