Nitiwat Muikaeo, 23, was arrested at his residence in Klong Luang district after the parents of victims lodged complaints with the Technology Crime Suppression Division (TCSD) about clips of their daughters online, according to TCSD deputy commander Siriwat Dipho.

Pol Col Siriwat told the media that Mr Nitiwat admitted he had recorded about 1,770 clips of several victims which were uploaded on the Russian social media network VK.

He said Mr Nitiwat created at least three accounts. Two of the accounts would be used to show previews such as photos and half-length clips to attract viewers.
