The Delhi Police Special Cell has arrested an ISI agent for blackmailing a lady Colonel and threatening to share her morphed photos on social media.
The police nabbed Mohammad Parvez after the Colonel, posted at Kota NCC, filed a complaint with local police. The police carried out technical analyses on the numbers and fake Facebook ID provided by Colonel in the complaint.
During interrogation, the accused disclosed that he and his aides wanted to extract confidential information for the Colonel and hence threatened her with morphed pictures.
Parvez claimed that he was working for ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence agency, and the confidential information was to be used by ISI operatives to destabilize the Centre.
The victim claimed that she was receiving obscene morphed images from the above numbers, which also carried a threat that the photos would be put up on social media if she doesn’t respond. The Colonel blocked the number but still continued to get calls, messages but this time from another number.
Parvez was arrested under IPC sections 123 (concealing with intent to facilitate design to wage war), 66E (Violation of privacy), 354D (stalking), 506 (criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and the IT Act’s section 67 (publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form).
