Crime Suppression Division police have arrested a transgender woman in Tak for allegedly live-streaming sex with her boyfriend to paying subscribers in a Line group.
Karnklao Klomkan, 30, known as Nong Phrai, was detained while walking along a dirt road in Sam Ngao district of Tak on Thursday, Pol Maj Gen Montri Khetkhan, CSD commander, said on Friday.
The suspect was wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the Criminal Court on Aug 2 for putting pornography into a computer system for commercial purpose or distribution, producing pornography, and related charges.
The arrest followed a complaint that a website was encouraging people to join an online group that featured sexual shows. Interested people were directed to pay a subscription to view the shows via a Line group. The shows featured live sexual acts by a couple at various locations, the CSD chief said.
Investigators identified one of the people in the shows.
Karnklao was also wanted on an arrest warrant issued by Wang Thong Lang police in Bangkok for similar offences. The suspect lived in Sam Ngao district.
During questioning, Karnklao allegedly admitted the offences. The man in the videos was her boyfriend, the suspect said.
The suspect said they started streaming live sex last year. The subscription rate was 700 baht per person and many people had joined the Line group.
The suspect would be handed over to Wang Thong Lang police for legal action, said CSD commander said.
