A Sri Lankan man from Jaffna who is currently residing in the UK has demanded Rs 1.7 million by blackmailing a woman from Slave Island after threatening to release her photographs on social media.  

 Police Spokesman SDIG Ajith Rohana said that the 33-year-old woman had lodged a complaint with the Police Women and Children’s Bureau claiming that the Sri Lankan had threatened her to pay the money.   
According to the investigations, the woman had maintained a relationship online with the UK based Sri Lankan man and during the conversations through social media, the Sri Lankan man had reportedly obtained photographs of the woman including nude photographs.

   
However, when they broke up the relationship, the man threatened to release her photographs into social media unless she agreed to pay Rs.1.7 million, SDIG Rohana said.   The woman agreed to pay Rs.700,000 and the Sri Lankan had deployed two people to extort the money, the spokesman said.   


The two suspects were arrested when they showed up to collect the money at Union Place.
