Man broadcast ex’s nude pics after row – court hears

A Kitty man is now facing a charge that he broadcast nude pictures of his former girlfriend on the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service after they had an argument.

David Khan, of 34 Gordon Street, Kitty, was placed on $125,000 bail yesterday, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, where he was charged.

It was the police’s case that sometime between November 1, 2013 and January 1, 2014, Khan knowingly exposed naked pictures of Sharice Gaskin, with whom he shared a relationship. Khan denied the charge, which was read against him by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.

According to a report read in court by Police Prosecutor Bharat Mangru, Gaskin and Khan are known to each other and went out on several occasions. The report stated that on one of those occasions, Khan asked Gaskin to use her phone. It was then that Khan allegedly sent the photos to his phone from Gaskin’s phone. Sometime after that, Gaskin and Khan had an argument and subsequently Gaskin was told that her nude pictures were spotted on BBM, according to Mangru. She reported the matter and subsequent investigations led to Khan’s arrest.

Khan, at the end of the hearing, was granted $125,000 bail and the case was adjourned till January 7, 2014, when statements are expected to be filed.
