The Cyber Crime Police in Hyderabad on Friday said that they arrested a Pakistani National, for illegally entering the country and marrying an Indian woman fraudulently by lying about his citizenship.
The police also said that the accused blackmailed his wife and her daughter, and also 'sold' obscene pictures of the duo, which were later uploaded on the internet.
The incident came to light after the wife approached the police and filed a complaint.
The accused has been identified as 41-year-old Mohd Usman Ikram alias Mohd Abbas Ikram, who was staying at Chanderghat.
The complainant told the police that while she was working in Dubai, she married one Ikram, who deceived her stating that he was an Indian Muslim from Delhi. However, she later discovered that he is a Pakistani National.
"After she came back to India, the accused too came to India saying that he was on a visit visa for six months. Later, the complainant came to know that he came to India illegally via Nepal," the police said in a press release.
The woman, who was previously married and had two children, alleged that Ikram had secretly shot obscene photographs and videos of her daughter when she was hardly 12 years old and sold the clipping to some person, which went viral.
"The accused also sent a message on WhatsApp to a friend of his wife, stating that he will expose the daughterâ€™s nude photos publicly and tried to blackmail her. The accused used to torture the complainant for money and whenever she refused, he beat her severely," the police said.
Based on the complaint, a case was registered and the police began their investigation.
According to a preliminary inquiry, the cyber crime police found that Ikram hailed from Punjab state in Pakistan and had entered Nepal from Pakistan by air, from where he illegally crossed the border by road and arrived at Delhi and then at Hyderabad.
"After arriving in India, he had created fake residential documents and education degrees through various agents and had been doing sundry jobs in private firms. His antecedents and activities are further being verified," the police said.
