Bhubaneswar: Police have arrested a Border Security Force (BSF) jawan for allegedly forcing a 26-year-old woman to have a physical relationship with him by threatening to make their intimate pictures & videos viral.

The jawan, identified as Manoj Kumar Mahakud (40), is currently posted at BSF camp near Badatota in Jatni of Khurda district. He got in touch with the woman, who worked as an agent for a construction company in Bhubaneswar, while looking for a plot of land to buy in 2017.
