Four men were arrested for taking naked photographs and videos of a housewife and extorting her and her husband in Jhenaidah on Thursday evening, said a press release issued by Bangladesh Police on Friday.

The arrestees were Sunny Munshi, 23, Md Shaon, 24, Md Maruf Billah, 25, and Sohan, 25.

The victim and her husband filed a complaint to the police superintendent office on Thursday afternoon saying that a boy from her husband’s workplace entered their house with groceries on June 18 while the husband was not at home.

Following the boy, four men entered the house and locked the victim’s daughter in another room. They tried to scare both the woman and the boy, forcing them to pose for naked photographs and videos.

The victim at first did not tell anyone out of shame but later filed the complaint after getting threats from the four men regarding getting the photos and videos uploaded on the internet.

On receiving the complaint, police arrested the four men.

On investigation, the men confessed to police that they needed money to buy drugs which they tried to collect by harassing the victim and through extortion.

Police also seized four mobile phones with photos and videos of the victim.
