Highlights from the Article

Cyber Crime Cell – college students are allegedly using sites like Orkut, Facebook and MySpace to target people they don’t like by creating fake profiles, posting abuses, obscene pictures of their friends or giving out personal detail like telephone numbers, addresses and e-mail ids. In other words, character assassination.

Police – More often than not, the perpetrator is a boy who wants to get back at a girl who has spurned his affections.

Cyber Crime Cell – We get at least one case a month from a popular networking site who’s privacy levels are known to be a little lax.


> The IP addresses will enable the Cell to track down people who have posted messages and book them if the need arises, police officials said.
