Boy posts classmate’s photo on Orkut, offering `services’

COIMBATORE: In perhaps the first reported case of a juvenile indulging in cyber crime in Coimbatore, the city crime police have secured a 10th standard student of a private city school for posting the photo of his classmate on a website which offered her “services” to surfers.

As a result, the girl was flooded with calls from all over, even as far as Delhi and Kolkata wanting to ‘spend time with her’. City Police Commissioner C K Gandhirajan who was apprised of the girl’s plight deputed the City Crime Police to trace the culprit. They checked the Orkut website, contacted Google officials in Bangalore and zeroed in on the girl’s classmate.

Police sources said that the boy and girl were involved in frequent fights in school and he had posted her photo on the website to wreak vengeance on her. “Since he is a juvenile, we haven’t arrested him nor have we released his name or contact particulars,” said Gandhirajan.

Deputy Commissioner, City Crime Police, K Krishnan, who is investigating the case told this website’s newspaper that the boy’s laptop has been secured and sent for further investigation. “Only after getting specific information, we can proceed further regarding the arrest of the boy,” Krishnan said.
