Police have taken into custody an unidentified woman and her son for blackmailing another youth and demanding KD 35,000 to protect his reputation.
The victim had sex with two other youths and later when he refused to oblige the suspects threatened to post his video clip on the social media.
Then an idea struck them and they demanded KD 20,000 to protect his name. When the mother of one of the rapists saw her son had suddenly become a spendthrift, demanded to know the source of money, and the son narrated the incident.
The mother instead of punishing her son, urged him to demand KD 35,000 more following which the victim filed a complaint with the police.
The police then set a trap for the mother and her son and caught them red-handed while receiving the money. The mother, the son and the third accomplice have been referred to the authorities.
