Woman attempts suicide after becoming relative's sex slave

CHINA - China Press reported that 23-year-old Vanitha from Kuala Lumpur had been made a sex slave by a man who offered to help her when she was having boyfriend trouble five years ago.

She said she was first blackmailed by her ex-boyfriend who demanded RM7,000 (S$2,700).

"He said if I failed to give him the money, he would upload my naked pictures on the Internet.

"The man, who is a relative, helped me. He later asked me to move in with him. I did not know then that he was married with two children," she said.

Vanitha claimed that he would force her to have sex and locked her up.

Her plight was uncovered after a suicide attempt.
