Cops say she wanted revenge after finding honeymoon dresses disappointing

The Cyber Crime cell of the police arrested a 29-year-old woman techie who had created obscene profiles of a boutique owner and uploaded these on three adult websites.

According to the suspect, she had done this because the boutique owner had provided her clothes which caused her disappointment when she wore them on her honeymoon.

The techie, who lives in Phursungi, is originally from Mumbai. The police said the arrested woman was an MTech and was working with a reputable IT firm in Kalyaninagar.

The matter came to light after the victim received calls from unknown people. She decided to probe the matter further and came to know that her profile with her cell number was on adult sites. 

After the victim's husband came to know about it, the couple decided to lodge a complaint with the Cyber Crime Cell on Wednesday. Investigations revealed that same Internet Protocol (IP) and email address had been used to create the profile on the three websites.

The police found out the name of the person in whose name the IP address was registered and traced her to her Phursungi residence.

According to the Cyber Cell, the techie was called in for questioning and confessed. She was arrested and the laptop used by her for uploading the obscene profiles was also seized.

"The suspect had purchased some clothes from the victim's boutique. The clothes were allegedly not up to the mark, so the IT professional said she took revenge as she wanted to teach the boutique owner a lesson," said API Dr Sanjay Tungar of the Cyber Crime Cell. The suspect was produced before JMFC S S Bose and 14-day judicial custody was sought. Later, she was granted bail.
