A young couple in Selangor was recently arrested for threatening to leak a woman’s nude photos

Harian Metro reported that the arrests were made during two separate raids at Sungai Buloh and Sea Park.

Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said that the two suspects, aged 22 and 23 years old, were found to have previously extorted a 22 year-old-woman on 31 May.

The suspects demanded RM1,000 from the victim in order to stop her nude photos from being circulated

The victim then transferred RM300 and RM400 to two separate bank accounts, as reported by Harian Metro.

“On 1 June, the victim filed a police report regarding the incident. Investigations found that the victim had sent nude photos to her then-boyfriend. However, her ex-boyfriend’s phone has been missing since March,” said Nik Ezanee.

He added that the male suspect is a friend of the ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, the other woman arrested is the suspect’s fiancée. 

“The suspect used his fiancée’s account for the bank transaction,” he said.

The case is being investigated under Section 384 of the Penal Code for extortion

According to Burgie Law, if found guilty, the suspects are liable to be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to ten years or with fine or with whipping or with any two of such punishments.
