The Mumbai police arrested a 20-year-old man from Mahuva in Bhavnagar on Monday for blackmailing young children to send their nude picture and for child pornography.

He then uploaded the same on social media sites. The cyber cell of Mumbai police also found nude photographs of more than 800 minor girls in the phone of the accused.

 

All the girls were between 10 and 15 years of age. Mumbai media reports identified the youth as Alfaz Jamani, a class 12 dropout who worked at a local factory.

The complaint

Media quoted Mumbai police as saying that they went on the trail of Jamani after the cops received seven complaints from parents. The parents said the nude photographs of their minor children were doing the round of social media.

Through technical surveillance, the cops tracked a man in Bhavnagar. On September 6, a team of the Mumbai police arrested him from his house.

How he trapped children

Jamani allegedly told cops that he would first befriend minor girls on social media by sending them a friend request. Once they accepted the request, he would download their pictures and morph them to make nude pictures of them.

He would upload the same on several of his fake profiles. He would also send these pictures to the kids and blackmail them into giving him their username and password.

Once he had access to their accounts he would change the password and other security setting to permanently lock them out of their account. He would then blackmail them to send him their actual nude pictures in return for access to their accounts.

He would also use their accounts to chat with their other female friends and share the account holders’ nude pictures. He would use the nude pictures (posing as the account holder) to lure more girls and tell them how to achieve the perfect body as the pictures in the nude.

He would suggest a medicine for the same and would then ask them to send their nude pictures so that he could advise them on what dosage of medicine to take to achieve the body type.

He would thus gain access to more nude pictures of the kids.

Repeat offender

Jamani has been booked under various sections of the IPC for stalking, sexual harassment, child pornography and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Act.

Cops recovered four mobile phones from Jamani, He had in all over 800 nude pictures some of which were in the mobile phones of his parents and elder brother. He also had 17 fake social media profiles.

Interestingly, Jamani was earlier arrested by the Pune Police for a similar offence but was later released on bail.
