Mumbai: Sex on video call with woman costs Bandra man Rs 2 lakh
MUMBAI: A senior executive of a housing finance firm ended up paying Rs 2.06 lakh in a case of sextortion after he received a call from a man claiming to be a cop from Delhi Cyber Crime Cell who demanded money to protect him from arrest for uploading his nude videos on social media.
The Bandra police registered an FIR against an unidentified person. The caller had identified himself as Delhi cop Vikram Rathod repeatedly threatened and demanded more money after extorting Rs2.06 lakh for not getting him arrested.
The 57-year-old Bandra (West) resident said he got a WhatsApp message on June 11 which read “interested in video sex”. He replied ‘Yes’ and soon got a video call from a woman who asked him to undress. He agreed and soon he started receiving calls, threatening to inform his sister and family members about his nude video.
The caller, according to the complainant, asked him to undress after entering the bathroom. “He said the woman had no clothes on but her face was not visible in the video call. Immediately, the call got disconnected. Seconds later, the man got another call from a woman who said she had recorded his sex video and threatened to make it viral on social media if he does not pay Rs 81,000,” said an officer from Bandra police station.
Two days later, the person who said he was from Delhi Cyber Crime called the man and threatened to frame him in a case, and said if he wanted to avoid it was asked to contact one Ranvir Gupta to delete the videos.
The man called Gupta and was asked to pay Rs 51,500. Later was asked to pay Rs 51,500 again and Rs 1.03 lakh for the multiple videos running on different social media links.
The police said the man lodged a complaint when the fraudster started demanding more money.
Watching porn which is free would have been a better option rather than this kind of video call...kuch karne mila nahi aur paise bhi gayee.... uncle in this age needs more of meditation and yoga.
it was an obvious trap. But common sense is not very common.
WHY IS POLICE NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THESE CRIMINALS?
Why these IP adress cant be tracked and arrest the criminals ?
Everybody has right to the basic necessity of human being irrespective of age. The police have to nab the culprit. The victim has to be given all options to satisfy his need.
What kind of a society is this? You call a 57 yr old man Uncle? He is not 70 or 80 ! Anyway, everyone has desires and he is not even a senior citizen. Poor man!
57-year-old... What a joke, Uncle ki masti mehangi pad gayi.. how can people be so fool and desperate to just trust at a whatsapp msg. Really funny...
