SHE Teams have nabbed a man for blackmailing a budding film actress in the name of nude pics. With the help of technology, this guy collected the phone number of an actress from the Telugu film industry and started harassing her. He reportedly collected her phone number through an app called Star Makers. He sent obscene messages to the phone number and harassed her.
He not only used obscene language but also made occasional phone calls to her, threatening to upload nude photos of her on social media every time she cut him off. The actress was into depression worried about her career and family if the pictures really come out. She remained silent worried about her career if things like this came out.
However, as his harassment intensified, she reached out to the SHE teams of the Hyderabad police with a complaint. They traced his number and arrested him. SHE teams appeal to women to reach out to them in such instances. "If you are worried about revealing your identity, we will also take anonymous complaints," they assured. Only in the months of March and April, SHE teams have got 355 such complaints, the department reveals.
