A 28-year-old man was arrested from Uttar Pradesh for allegedly circulating obscene video clips of his wife to obtain a divorce, police in Deonar in Mumbai said on Tuesday. The man, who fled Mumbai after a case was registered, was nabbed from Shravasti in UP, along with the person who provided him videos of his wife, an official said.
”The man who provided the videos to the husband had assaulted and raped the woman. He had shot videos and had demanded Rs 5.20 lakh from the woman to not circulate it on social media. After he did not get money, he sent the videos to the woman’s husband, who also used it to blackmail her into giving divorce,” he said. The two have been charged for rape, extortion and other offences based on the complaint of the woman, the Deonar police official added.
