The miscreant had been sending mails asking the victim to marry him for the past one year. Recently, he had mailed her nude pictures to Sunil Nair, the victim’s fiancée, and to his sister in order to scuttle the marriage.Police said the victim was the accused’s classmate while they were pursuing M.Tech in a private college in Hyderabad.
