On February 20th, the Lubbock Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children Task force along with investigators from the League City Police Department, affected the arrest of Nilanjan Brahma, 50, of League City TX.

The LPD ICAC and LCPD served three search warrants and one arrest warrant after a nine month online undercover investigation conducted by the LPD ICAC.

LPD ICAC Investigators involved in undercover operations entered into an online chat with the defendant, who believed he was communicating with a 13-year-old female. Brahma allegedly displayed lewd images of himself and also solicited the undercover officer for sex. On two separate occasions Brahma discussed plans to travel to Lubbock to meet with who he thought was a 13 year old female; however these meetings did not take place.

In addition to imprisonment, a felony of the second degree may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000. Bond was set at $200, 000.00. Brahma was released from the Galveston County Jail after posting bond.
