Bangalore: Peeping Tom arrested for taking nude pictures of women

A man who allegedly photographed women while they were taking a shower and later blackmailed them by threatening to post the images on the internet has been nabbed by the city police.

Parameshwar, a school drop-out, was arrested last week by a special team following a complaint by a man that the accused had threatened to make public his wife's nude photograph, Police Commissioner Jyoti Prakash Mirji said.

The accused used to climb on to ledges of windows or adjoining terraces and take nude photographs of women using his mobile phone or camera, Mirji told reporters here today.

He would then make CDs of these images, send them to his victims and blackmail them to part with a huge amount of money, said Mirji.
