In a shocking incident, a 50-year-old man from Kota, Rajasthan, has been arrested for sharing nude pictures of his 75-year-old mother with their relatives on Whatsapp to blackmail her into handing over the ownership papers of their ancestral home. The man Deepak Tiwari was produced before the court on Sunday and has been sent to judicial custody.
As per the police, Tiwari started demanding the property after his father passed away three weeks ago. As per the elder woman’s complaint, Tiwari sprayed some substance over her when she was performing a ‘hawan’ for her husband on May 13. As the woman felt itchy, she went to the bathroom to have a bath. It was this when Tiwari clicked her pictures and sent them to relatives over Whatsapp.
It was after the relatives informed the elder woman about the pictures that she approached Kota police and filed a complaint against her son. Deepak Tiwari has been booked by the police under relevant sections of the IPC and the IT Act.
