Medchal (Telangana): A 19-year-old man and two of his friends have been arrested for posting obscene pictures and videos on a woman's Facebook account, police said on Tuesday. Vannala Rakesh started harassing the woman after she rejected his proposal for marriage, they said. Rakesh, who was privy to her social media account details, posted obscene photos and videos from the Internet along with the phone numbers of the woman and her parents.

"Two of his friends -- Chinthakindi Mahesh (23) and Mohammed Gouse (21), who helped him to commit the crime, were also taken into custody," the police said.

During the investigation, the police found that the accused were staying in Ankushapur village of Ghakesar Mandal and nabbed them. The three men were produced in court and sent to judicial custody.
