34-yr-old held for circulating pvt pics of woman
Kolkata: A person was arrested by cyber crime police station in Bidhannagar Commissionerate for circulating private photographs of a woman on social networking sites.
The youth, Jitender Singh Grewal (34), was arrested from Salt Lake's FE Block on Friday night. The complainant who originally hails from Bihar has been staying in Kestopur under Baguiati police station.
"Jitender had created fake Facebook IDs by repeatedly using credentials of the complainant and posted her private videos in these fake Facebook IDs.
The videos were captured when the woman was involved in a relationship with one of her co-employees in an office in Salt Lake where she used to work earlier," a senior official of the cyber crime police station said.
Jitender used to work in the same Salt Lake office of the complainant during that time.
He had shared these pictures with the complainant's relatives and colleagues of her present office under New Town police station area.
The complaint was lodged on April 2 after the complainant had noticed that the circulation of private photographs was going on for nearly a month.
"We have recovered the gadgets used for uploading private videos of the complainant and also the device where the private videos were saved," a senior police official said. Police sources further informed that Jitender, who originally hails from Ludhiana in Punjab, stays at Tiljala Road in Kolkata.
"Our preliminary enquiry has revealed that the complainant had proposed to the victim but was rejected. Following this, he decided to indulge in this practice to malign her image," an investigating officer added.
