The Damoh Kotwali police have arrested a youth who used Sagar SP Sachin Atulkar’s photograph as his Facebook profile photo and blackmailed a married woman of Damoh.

Damoh Kotwali station officer SS Rajput said accused Aditya Soni, 19, resident of Danoh’s Hindoriya village, prepared his Facebook account using name as Aditya Kunal Singh and used Sagar SP Sachin Atulkar’s photo as his and posted himself as an IPS officer based in Delhi. On basis of the fake account, he developed friendship with a 26-year-old married woman belonging to Damoh. He developed personal relationship with her and received private pictures from her and even morphed her picture and began blackmailing her. He received Rs 5000 and Rs 3000 on two occasions from the victim. The woman reported the matter to Kotwali police on October 20 and he was arrested the next day and booked under sections of IPC and IT Act. He was produced in court on Saturday and sent to jail.
