It was the time between the months of October and December last year when they began speaking to each other and the girl fell for him. They had regular Skype interactions, and during one of them, he recorded a naked video of the girl.
Later, he started blackmailing the girl, and threatened her to leak the video online if she stops being physical intimate with him. Gaurav often visited Mumbai, and even after the threats, she finally decided to file a complaint against him on Dec 12, 2016.
She said, ‘Shaw approached me with a marriage proposal and gained my trust by claiming to belong to a leading business family of Kolkata. He even claimed to own a flat in Powai. He frequently met me between October and December and captured my video on Skype.
When I stumbled upon his real business, he began to blackmail me by threatening to circulate the video online. Shaw owns a tea stall in Kolkata while his father sells soaps’.
Well, even though we are moving quickly towards digitisation, but one needs to very careful while using such sites.
