Thiruvananthapuram: Television serial actor, Shan (25) was arrested for sending nude pictures, later identified as photoshopped, to the fiancee of the woman he met through Facebook. Shan had promised the woman roles in television serials and even of marriage since 2014 and had photographed her which were later photoshopped to make nude stills.
Owing to differences over financial concerns, Shan and the woman had parted ways. Hearing about her engagement with a youth working in the Gulf, Shan sent her nude pictures to the fiance. This led to the wedding being called off.
The woman's family filed a police complaint which led to his arrest by Palode CI Shibu Kumar and team. Shan was remanded after sections under POCSO and IT Act were charged. Shan hails from Karimankode, Palode of Thiruvananthapuram district.
