Bid to blackmail beautician foiled

By Wimal Keerthi Negombo Correspondent

A person who got friendly with a beautician via Facebook and persuaded her to come nude on Skype and later demanded Rs. 250,000 if he was not to release the pictures was arrested by the CID on a complaint lodged by the victim.

The complainant is a resident of Kandana.

The police said that the suspect had sent the victim a DVD containing her nude photographs and demanded the money if they were not to be posted on the Internet.

The suspect was produced before the Negombo Magistrate A. M. P. N. Amarasinghe and released on Rs. 10,000 cash bail.
