Man arrested for demanding sexual bribes from young women

Published

on

A man who conducted interviews via internet under the guise of operating a company that recruits flight attendants was arrested for attempting to solicit sexual bribes from young women.

The suspect, who is a meter reader of the National Water Supply and Drainage Board and a resident of Hanguranketha, was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

The suspect was arrested during an investigation launched based on complaints received from two young women living in Matale and Kandy to Senior Superintendent of Police Lucky Randeniya, Director of the CID Computer Crime Investigation Division.

A team including Police Inspector Chathuri Dissanayake, Chief Inspector of the Computer Crime Investigation Division in Kandy, had seized four mobile phones, 13 SIM cards and a computer used by the suspect.

Nude photos of more than 20 young women were found on the computer.

The suspect has been operating a Facebook account for two years under the name ‘Ruwaththiyange Getalu’, pretending to be a woman, and connecting groups that provide advice on maintaining beauty, job opportunities and acting opportunities to young women.

Meanwhile, he had posted a Facebook post on recruiting flight attendants on the account using the name and number of a young woman.

Applications have been called from women through text messages and another number had been sent saying it was of the head of the institution.

Accordingly, the suspect had impersonated himself as the head of the institution.

The suspect has sent SMS to the applicants saying they have met the basic qualifications and then had asked them to send separate photographs of fingers, nails, legs, hair and face.

He has finally informed the applicants to send nude photos to his female officer to see if there are any scars on their body.

Accordingly, a large number of young women have sent nude photos to this number hoping to become flight attendants.

The suspect had then threatned the young women demaning sexual bribes.

He has been deceiving young women through this Facebook account for about two years.
