Rourkela: Uploading photos of a woman and blackmailing her with the help of a fake account on social networking website, Facebook, cost a youth from Dhenkanal dear. The youth, Ajay Panda from Koilipangi village in Dhenkanal district was arrested today and forwarded to the court for allegedly blackmailing the woman.
Ajay initially established friendship with the woman from Rourkela through Facebook. He then downloaded the woman’s photographs from her Facebook profile and uploaded the same on the social networking website after opening a fake account in her name. Subsequently, he started blackmailing the woman with her photos and obscene messages.
Despite repeated appeals of the woman, Ajay did not refrain from posting the vulgar messages and uploading her photos.
Left with no other option, the woman sought the help of the Rourkela Cyber police station a week ago.
Based on a written complaint filed by the woman, the cyber police registered a case and launched an investigation. As Ajay was not residing in Rourkela, the police traced his location to Koilipangi village with the help of mobile tracking.
Yesterday night, the police raided Ajay’s house at Koilipangi and arrested him.
