Udupi: Inquiry in Progress against Cop involved in Rs 25-lakh Fake Porn Video Blackmail

Udupi: A departmental inquiry against suspended police constable Sudheer has been taken up by the district police.

Mohammed Shamil and constable Sudheer​

One Mohammed Shamil had blackmailed a relative who had a married daughter and shown him video clippings of a woman in a porn movie who resembled her. He told the father that the police from Delhi and Bengaluru were looking for her on sex trade charges and that she would soon be arrested. He also demanded Rs 30 lakh from him, failing which the clippings would be uploaded to the Internet.

Police constable Sudheer, who was in charge of cyber-crime detection, had joined hands with him in the blackmail. The victim of the blackmail obtained a loan by pledging his house and paid Shamil Rs 25 lakh. Thereafter he realized that the claim was false and that the clippings were not of his daughter.

On Sep 1, he complained to the town police. Shamil was arrested on Sep 5, while Sudheer had been absconding. In the meanwhile, he obtained an anticipatory bail from the state high court.

Since it is a grave case of misuse of his post and uniform, which had brought a bad name to the department, superintendent of police Annamalai is said to have taken a serious note of it. A departmental inquiry is being held against Sudheer.
