An aspiring model was filmed in nude by a woman and her associates after being given drinks, laced with sedatives.

The model was subsequently blackmailed and asked to shell out Rs 5 lakh for deleting the video which they had uploaded on the Internet.

The incident took place at a guest house in Vibhuti Khand police station area Lucknow, where the victim was asked to come for a screen test.

UP Police on Saturday registered a case based on a complaint filed by the woman.

In her complaint, the model alleged that the accused had uploaded her video on different social media sites and are bullying her to pay Rs 5 lakh for deleting it.

Police said the victim came in contact with one Diya Verma who offered her to work with Vaishnavi Film Productions and promised to launch her in modelling and films.

The accused Diya later introduced the victim to Anoop Ojha, Varun Tiwari, Ayush Mishra, Priya Mishra and Sandeep Vishwakarma saying they were her colleagues.

At the guest house, the victim was offered drinks laced with some sedatives and then given a costume and asked to go to the changing room to wear it.

“They filmed me when I was changing the dress and showed me the video later. They threatened me to act in an obscene film or they would upload my video on social media.

“When I did not yield to their pressure and refused to do any obscene scenes and asked them to delete the video from their camera, they demanded Rs 5 lakh for it. When I did not pay them, they uploaded the video on the Internet and have since been harassing me and demanding money,” she alleged.
