Deccan Chronicle - - City - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

Cy­ber­abad cy­ber­crime in­ves­ti­ga­tors cracked a black­mail­ing case by trac­ing the IP ad­dress through which the vic­tim re­ceived threat­en­ing emails. The sleuths traced the IP ad­dress of the sys­tem and nabbed the black­mailer near Nam­pally rail­way sta­tion on Satur­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the cy­ber­crime po­lice, they got a com­plaint from a girl stat­ing that she had re­ceived mails from an un­known per­son. The mails had at­tach­ments of her per­sonal pho­tos and videos. The black­mailer also de­manded `4 lakh from the vic­tim. When she did not re­spond, he threat­ened to up­load the pic­tures on so­cial me­dia.

in the past while he used to work in a pri­vate com­pany. They were in a live-in re­la­tion­ship for some time. When she re­jected his mar­riage pro­posal, he de­vel­oped a grudge against her.
