Singapore: A Singapore court has fined an Indian-origin flight attendant Singapore Dollar 5,000 for threatening to upload a video clip of a woman stripping herself on the Internet.
Kishenraj Rengaraj, 22, admitted threatening to injure the reputation of the bartender and causing her alarm in January last year, The Straits Times reported today.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Ailene Chou said the 21-year-old victim befriended with Kishenraj through a website and then exchanged mobile numbers in January last year.
Kishenraj asked to meet her. The woman agreed for the meeting and demanded Singapore Dollar 300 (USD 237) from the youth to pay her rent.
On Jan 10 last year, they had a video chat over mobile application Facetime when Kishenraj offered to the woman Singapore Dollar 200 for video sex.
He sent a screenshot of his online banking account details to prove that he would transfer the money to her account.
Kishenraj ended the video chat after a few minutes but did not transfer the money. The victim contacted him via mobile chat platform WhatsApp and demanded to transfer the money.
Kishenraj refused and threatened her with text messages claiming that he had recorded the video.
The victim approached the police on February 2. Kishenraj's lawyer SS Dhillon said: "He knew very well that what he uttered to her could never be carried out. No recording was discovered on his mobile phone. It is impossible."
