The Hyderabad police have arrested a 33-year-old software engineer for live-streaming sexual acts with his unsuspecting wife, according to media reports.
According to a report in The Times of India, the victim, 28, lodged a complaint with the cyber crime police after a friend informed her that a video had been uploaded on to a porn site.
The cops traced the video to a man in Thrissur, who told them he had posted the video to the website after recorded it from a live streaming site. After the cops spoke to the victim and examined the video, they deduced that the clip had been recorded through the camera of the laptop kept in the victim's bedroom, The Times of India reported.
Hindustan Times reported that the police then became suspicious of the victim's husband and conducted a background check on him, examining his social media profile, his emails and his online activity. The software engineer reportedly confessed to positioning their laptop in a way that allowed him to live-stream their sexual activities.
“In order to mislead his wife, he would simultaneously screen a movie on the laptop. He also ensured that the laptop camera mostly recorded visuals of his wife while his own face remained obscured," the police told the Hindustan Times.
According to a report in India Today, the police discovered that the software engineer had registered himself as a male escort on three different websites, offering his 'services' to women. The police also found that the website on which the engineer live-streamed the video had around 3,000 members and that the video was available for a fee.
The New Indian Express reported the techie, a resident of Chintal in Jeedimetla area, offered his services as an escort because he was broke. When it did not work out, he registered himself on a porn website through which he could live-stream videos for money.
The engineer has been remanded in judicial custody.
