Refused money, man posts his girlfriend’s nude pictures online



According to the FIR, Lakara and the complainant, a 22-year-old, are both from Assam and came to Mumbai together in search of jobs in 2019

A 23-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly making a fake profile in the name of his girlfriend and sharing objectionable photos of her after she refused to give him money. Vanrai police nabbed the accused, Romanish Lakara, on Tuesday and produced him before the court. He has been remanded in police custody. 

According to the FIR, Lakara and the complainant, a 22-year-old, are both from Assam and came to Mumbai together in search of jobs in 2019. Lakara worked as a contractual labourer and the woman got a job as a house help for a family living in Goregaon East. When the pandemic started, the two left for Assam. The two lived together and the accused took some intimate photos of the complainant. 

As the Covid situation eased, the couple returned to Mumbai in March. While the woman went back to work for the same family, the accused did not manage to get a job. As a result, he kept asking the complainant for money. After she paid him a few times, she refused. 

“This led to a fight between the two and the accused threatened to post their intimate pictures on social media. When the woman refused to pay again, he first made one of the nude photos his display picture on WhatsApp and then made a fake profile under her name and shared all the photos there,” said an officer from Vanrai police station. 

The woman gathered courage and narrated her ordeal to her employer, who helped her lodge a complaint with the police. The police set up a trap near Dadar station and nabbed Lakara when he came to meet the woman. “He has been arrested under sections 384, 354(d), and 509 of the IPC and various sections of IT Act. He was produced before the court and has been remanded in police custody,” said inspector Rani Puri. She added, “We have seized his phone and recovered the objectionable content.”
