BENGALURU: A man who allegedly used photos of his former female colleagues in compromising positions to demand sexual favours from them was arrested here on Tuesday.Police said that the accused is Narayan Prabhu, who worked as a sales manager with a private company on Infantry Road. While working at there, he befriended two female colleagues. The women were aspiring models and wanted to appear in advertisements. Prabhu claimed to know influential people in the ad industry and convinced the women that he could help them feature in advertisements. For this, he convinced the two women to be photographed in revealing clothes, cops added. Prabhu told the women that the submission of photos in revealing clothes was mandatory, they said.

“After he photographed them, he quit the job and began blackmailing the women for sexual favours. Prabhu threatened to upload their pictures on social media platforms. He even said that he would morph the pictures to make them appear nude and send the images to their families,” police sources said.
After several calls from the accused, the women reportedly informed the Commercial Street police and lodged a complaint against him, following which he was arrested.
