A sub-inspector said, “She said she joined the group as she was looking for a groom from her community. She came to know about her photo and number being posted on the porn page when she got the call.”
Content blocked

“Following the FIR, the content was blocked. As the victim has not named anyone, we are probing the case from all angles. We are also trying to find out whether it is the handiwork of students from her school,” said another officer. The police have written to Facebook, seeking the IP address of the system using which the content was uploaded.

Managing privacy
An officer said, “People should protect their content by using the privacy features. It’ll make them less vulnerable and help in curbing cyber crimes.”
