In a disturbing scam, a sextortion gang allegedly defrauded a man of more than Rs 78,000, as confirmed by police on Thursday.

The victim reported that on April 30, he received a WhatsApp video call from a woman who was naked and persuaded him to undress while she recorded the call. Later, an individual posing as a crime branch officer demanded Rs 20,000 to avoid disseminating the video online, escalating the amount to Rs 58,999.

After realizing the deceit, the man approached the police, who have since registered an FIR under IPC sections 419 and 420. Efforts are underway to track down the perpetrators, a senior police officer stated.
