Honey-trapping a retired Army personnel
On 27 July 2023, it was reported that Nithya Sasi with her friend, Binu, had blackmailed a 75-year-old man, a retired army man and football coach of a University in Kerala, who was residing in Pattom and owned a house and a farmhouse near Paravur, Kalakkode. He entrusted his nephew, Binu, a native of Paravur, with the task of selling the land who shared the information with various individuals on WhatsApp. One of these individuals was Nithya, whom Binu had known for the past two and a half years.
Binu introduced Nithya to the elderly man, and they had their first phone conversation on 24 May 2023 and later had multiple meetings, discussing the purchase of properties. As their friendship grew, Nithya agreed to rent one of the properties from him. On 6 June 2023, the 75-year-old man visited the house in Kalakkode accompanied by Nithya. Binu secretly recorded their intimate moments through a hidden camera on his mobile phone. Later, Binu demanded Rs 25 lakh from the elderly man, threatening to circulate the explicit visuals on social media if he refused to comply.
Binu further changed the extortion money and demanded Rs 15 lakh from the man and Rs 10 lakh from Nithya. The elderly man was also emotionally manipulated by Nithya who pretended to be financially constrained, leaving him with no choice but to deposit Rs 11 lakh in her account, which she was supposed to give to Binu. After receiving the money, Binu pretended to destroy the explicit visuals but later demanded an additional Rs 4 lakh, sending the visuals again as a sign of blackmail. Suspecting that he was being blackmailed by both Nithya and Binu, the elderly man filed a complaint with the Paravur police on July 18. Unaware of the complaint, Nithya and Binu continued to contact him. Following police instructions, he invited them to his flat in Pattom, where the Paravur police arrested both of them. As of 28 July 2023, it was suspected that the Rs 11 lakh given to Nithya was not handed over to Binu.
