Rourkela: Rourkela police arrested a youth, who was on the run for about four months on charges of blackmailing and selling off two girls in Saudi Arabia for Rs 25 lakh on March 8. The arrested youth has been identified as Biswajit Mallik.
According to police, Biswajit Mallik was nabbed from Kendrapara by a team of Raghunathpalli police and is being interrogated in this connection.
Biswajit Mallik had reportedly sold off two girls of Sundergarh to a broker in Saudi Arabia for Rs 25 lakh after blackmailing them with the help of sex video, which he had shot after keeping the girls in a hotel on the pretext of providing jobs abroad.
However, one of the girls managed to escape and sought help from Indian embassy in December 2017 and thus the matter came to light.
