A female government officer in Padavi, Sripura was allegedly threatened by her ex-lover, who warned to release her nude photos to her husband if she did not pay him the ransom he demanded, police said.
The suspect had also threatened that he would publish the pictures online to shame the government officer if the monies were not transferred to him.
The Sripura police said the woman had filed a complaint in this regard.
In her complaint, the victim said that since 2019, the woman had been forced to deposit more than Rs. 2.6 million into the bank account of the suspect.
The woman had an affair with the suspect who is a resident of Kuliyapitiya a few years ago, and he had clicked her nude photos during their relationship.
Since the affair ended, she said the suspect had been blackmailing her by demanding money to avoid leaking her nude photos to her husband and publish it online.
Investigations are underway to arrest the suspect who is believed to have gone into hiding, police said. (DSB)
