Fake video on arrest: Police hunt for TikTok star Sheriff
Kochi: Sheriff, the key accused in the case relating to blackmailing of actress Shamna Kasim, tried to deceive other girls who also fell victims of the scam. A video allegedly claiming that Sheriff was arrested by the police was sent to these girls by Rafeeq, who was nabbed by police in connection with blackmailing case.
The girls had decided to file a complaint and proceed with the case last month. It was in this context that Rafeeq tried to convince them that Sheriff was arrested by the police. He even sent a video of Sheriff sitting inside a police jeep. However, they realied the truth when they later came across a Tiktok video of Sheriff in the same jeep.
Meanwhile, police have not yet arrested Sheriff in connection with blackmailing case. It is reported that police have received information about his whereabouts and will be nabbed soon. The police inspected the hotels in Palakkad where the girls were forcibly kept.
