Suicide: Cousin held for morphing photos | Delhi News


New Delhi: Two months after a 17-year-old girl died by suicide after her morphed pictures were leaked on Facebook, her cousin was arrested on Tuesday.
Police said that the victim was a resident of Patel Nagar. Initially, the victim’s family had suspected her fiancé from Madhya Pradesh to be behind it but it later turned out that the woman’s cousin in Delhi was sending the pictures. Her fiancé had lodged a complaint with the Madhya Pradesh police stating that his account was hacked and he did not leak any of her pictures. On Tuesday, a team of Madhya Pradesh police reached Delhi and arrested the accused.
The minor girl had reported to Delhi Police in November last year that a man identified as Randeep sent her morphed obscene photos of hers on messenger in October and threatened to upload them if she did not marry him. The victim said that she had got engaged to Randeep in January but called off her engagement in September last year.
A case under relevant sections was then registered. Later in January this year, the girl committed suicide. Randeep was then arrested and released on bail.
Meanwhile, Randeep approached the Bhopal police and lodged a complaint of his Facebook account being hacked. It later turned out it was the girl’s cousin who was sending the pictures. A team of the Bhopal police then reached Delhi and arrested her cousin on Tuesday.
Soon after the arrest was made by the MP police, family members staged a protest at Patel Nagar police station. The accused has been taken on transit remand by the MP police.
