A 43-year-old woman, living in Ambawadi, Gujarat, has accused her boyfriend of leaking her intimate pictures and blackmailing her when she tried to end their relationship.

The complaint further stated that around 15 years ago, her husband had left her and the children and married again. Since then, she has been single and living with her children.
In 2018, the woman met New Vatva resident Manish through her work colleagues.
They soon began spending time together and got into a relationship soon after. Over time, they got physically intimate.
According to the woman, Manish took pictures of their intimate moments during the relationship.
However, as per the complaint, eventually, the woman began to find the relationship inappropriate as she had grown-up children.
Sometime in August 2020, she decided to end her relationship with Manish.
However, when she told him about her decision, he allegedly got furious and threatened to circulate their intimate photographs if she tried to end the relationship.
