A female university student has been jailed for five years for extorting more than 300,000 yuan (US$47,238) from a police officer by pretending to be seven different people and threatening to expose his affair.

The 21-year-old student at Beijing's Communication University of China, surnamed Yang, met the railway policeman surnamed Li online in June last year calling herself "Zhang Ran." Li fell in love with her, Beijing No. 2 Intermediate Court heard.

But when they first met in real life, Yang claimed to be her cousin "Yang Fei," telling Li that "Zhang Ran" wasn't available. They had sex after having dinner and singing in a KTV, according to yesterday's Beijing Times.

Online the next day, Yang rebuked him for having sex with her "cousin." Li, not knowing they were the same person, apologized. But he would continue to date "Yang Fei" while chatting with "Zhang Ran" online.

Yang then began to ask for money from Li, threatening to expose the affair if he refused, the court said.
