Kolkata: Actor-photographer arrested for rape, blackmail


A small time actor-photographer of Tollygunge was arrested on Saturday for his alleged involvement in raping and blackmailing an upcoming model, police said.

30-year-old Aniket Da was arrested from his south Kolkata residence on the basis of a complaint by the model, who accused him of raping and then blackmailing her with her
photographs, they said.

The model, in her early 20s, had alleged in her complaint lodged at the Regent Park Police Station yesterday that Da had established physical relations with her, promising work in
films and soap operas.

In her complaint, she also alleged that Da had taken her personal photographs and whenever she demanded the promised work, the accused used to threaten that he would upload them on the internet, police added.
