A doctor from Government Medical College & Hospital (GMC&H) was blackmailed by a lady who threatened to make his filthy recordings popular on social media platforms, and he lost Rs 1.75 lakh in a sextortion case.
On August 14, the doctor accepted a friend request from a woman with the Facebook profile name Payal Joshi and fell victim to the cyber scammer. She began vulgar speaking with him after befriending him. She then requested his phone number.
Later, while on a video conversation, she allegedly forced him to strip in front of the camera. She began blackmailing him through video vlogging. She demanded that he transfer money into a certain account after threatening to show his filthy movies to his family members.
Fearing defamation, he deposited Rs 1.75 lakh from time to time in the account.
The victim finally approached Ajni Police and lodged an FIR. A police officer said that the matter was under investigation and the possibility of an online
fraudster making a fake profile on Facebook
to extort money from the victim cannot be ruled out.
