Two teenagers who allegedly raped girls and then posted their nude video clips on internet were arrested by the Varkala police on Tuesday. They have been charged under section 66C of IT Act and IPC 376 for rape, sexual abuse and for using the cyber media with malicious intentions. The teenagers were produced before the juvenile court and later let off on bail.
The incident came to light after one of the girls came across her own video clip on a friend’s mobile phone. The girl told her parents about it and one of her relatives complained about it to the police. Police then arrested both teenagers from Kallambalam after recording the statement of both girls.
The girls met the boys at a parallel college in Attingal. They won girls’ confidence by posing as lovers and would often take them to isolated bylanes in Varkala. They would engage in sexual intercourse and record it without the knowledge of the girls. The boys would upload the clips on internet and also stream the clips via bluetooth using their mobile phones. Police said that they are in search of the third person involved in the case.
