Two cases of releasing obscene videos on social media came to the fore in Uttar Pradesh.
In the first case, the woman BJP leader has lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against a party councillor and a junior worker. The junior BJP member allegedly created an obscene video of the woman and handed it over to the councillor who, in turn, is said to have created a fake ID on Facebook and posted the clip.
The BJP councillor named in the FIR has raked up controversies on various issues earlier. The police have registered a case under the IT Act and sped up investigations.
In the second case, a senior lawyer in Meerut is purportedly seen in a compromising situation with a minor girl who works in his office. Her father has submitted a complaint to the Bar Association alleging that the lawyer made the video viral after his daughter “refused to be physically exploited by him further”.
The association subsequently called an emergency meeting on Monday and unanimously decided to cancel the lawyer’s Bar membership following which he was removed from his high post in the association.
The police haven't registered an FIR in this matter so far.
