An Indian-origin US student appeared in a Fiji court for luring a Fijian girl into sending her explicit photos and then intimidating her, media reported Thursday.
Shivneel Singh, 22, developed an online relationship with the 20-year-old Fijian girl and then asked her to send her nude photos to him through Facebook, the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation reported.
The victim said that she sent the photos as she felt pressured to do so. After arriving in Fiji last Friday, Singh met the girl and coerced her into having sex with him saying he would release her nude photos online if she refused.
He was arrested from a motel in Fiji where he met the girl, a tertiary student. The Suva magistrates court charged Singh with criminal intimidation and clamped a stop-departure order on him, the report said.
