One of the victims had approached the police for legal action. She told the police that the suspect’s associates were his own cousins.

Police registered an FIR according to which the suspect made the complainant’s indecent videos after giving her intoxicating drinks and then threatened her to upload those videos on the social media if she did not pay him Rs500,000.

She had taken her family into confidence over the matter, who encouraged her to tell the whole matter to the police.

SP Rizwan Tariq said that as soon as the suspect identified his associates, police would arrest them.

The use of explicit videos and photos for blackmail is not a new phenomenon. Two weeks ago, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) cybercrime cell claimed to have arrested two men for harassing, blackmailing and threatening a girl in Multan.

According to official sources, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) cybercrime team arrested two accused named Muhammad Jamshaid and Muhammad Khalid over harassing, blackmailing and threatening a girl with explicit media of her.

The complainant, Mushtaq Ahmad, filed an application contending that the accused were harassing his daughter, upon which FIR No 143/23 was registered.
