Officer in Charge of Lichubari Outpost, Hemendra Sinha told The Sentinel, “The boy was picked up following a Jorhat PS case no 587/15 U/S 384. The complaint Jahvi Gogoi in her FIR had stated that the accused Ridip Padun was mentally harassing her in the pretext of editing her photo posted in the Facebook profile and was blackmailing her while threatening her to release her obscene photos in the internet. The extortion that first started from Rs 100, went up to Rs 1,000 and Rs 7,000. The accused also forced the girl to sell her gold earrings and mobile phone.
