Singapore, Feb 28 : An Indian national has been jailed for 32 months for threatening to post nude photos of 17 women online in this city-state if they did not have sex with him.
Mani Velmurugan, 28, a construction worker, tricked 17 women into sending him their nude photos between May and August last year by using a Caucasian man's photo for his profile page on an online chat website, the Today Online reported Friday.
Velmurugan was sentenced Thursday.
He would threaten them that he would post their nude photos online if they did not have sex with him, the court heard.
District Judge Eddy Tham said a harsh sentence had to be imposed so as to deter like-minded individuals.
