City police on Saturday arrested a 24-year-old man on charges of blackmailing a girl saying that he would post her pictures in intimate poses with his friend on social networking sites, including Facebook. Police said the girl was in love with Nanda (24), of Nungambakkam. They had taken several pictures together. Meanwhile, she was befriended by Samuel (24), also from Nungambakkam. The girl reportedly went to Samuel’s house, where she looked into his laptop and found her pictures in intimate poses with Nanda. She picked up a quarrel with him, who threatened to post the pictures on Facebook if she did not marry Nanda.
The girl informed her parents about the incident and a complaint was lodged. Investigations revealed that the Samuel had been blackmailing girls for money after befriending them.
