Blackmailer held after DCW's intervention
New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Women on Sunday claimed that after their intervention, one blackmailer, harassing a Delhi girl to upload her private photos on social media, arrested from Kolkata. The DCW in their press statement claimed that on December 23, their 181 helpline received a call from a girl residing in Delhi.
She informed the Commission that a boy was blackmailing her and was threatening to upload her intimate photos on social media. She learnt that he was doing the same with multiple other women as well.
"The girl shared this with her family but they asked her to remain silent fearing the family getting a 'bad name' in the society. The girl also tried to get help from the police but nothing could transpire," claimed the statement.
DCW further claimed that after receiving the call on 181 helpline, Mobile Helpline Counselor of the Commission reached the police station with the victim and registered a complaint. When DCW Chairperson Swati Maliwal spoke with the concerned DCP, an FIR was registered on 24th of December at the K N Katju Marg police station.
"DCP Outer ensured that a team of Delhi Police traced the location of the boy and went all the way to Kolkata to arrest him. On 27th of December, the boy was arrested and has now been brought to Delhi," said DCW.
However, he was given bail by the court. The boy after getting bail has again approached the girl. The Commission intends to support her in filing an application in court for cancellation of his bail.
