Agra, 2017.04.28 (Anuja Jaiswall, TNN): Photos of more than 50 school and college going girls from Vrindavan have been uploaded on fake Facebook accounts. The photos were accompanied by derogatory remarks about the girls.
A local social worker Dr Laxmi Gautam, along with the parents of the girls, approached the police on Friday and filed a complaint. Though cases have been registered under relevant sections of the IPC, no arrests have been made so far.
Significantly, this is the third such incident of photos of girls from the area being posted on social media in less than two years.
Talking to TOI, Dr Gautam said that a fake id was created with name of Pooja Agarwal and pictures of Vrindavan-based girls, shot from “awkward” angles, are being uploaded on facebook. She said all these pictures were taken in a clandestine manner while the girls were shopping in market places.
She said when some of girls learned about their pictures circulating on the social media, they informed their parents, who approached her for help.
Last year in August, morphed-obscene photos of 50 college girls, mostly from Vrindavan, depicting them as “call girls”, was allegedly circulated on social media.
Later, Mathura police had arrested a 26-year-old youth, Dharmender alias Sikander, a third-semester student of Chartered Accountancy from Patna in connection with the scandal of uploading of morphed obscene photographs on a WhatsApp group.
