Initial investigations of the cyber cell revealed that the students in the Instagram chat group were school as well as college students. These students are being told of different schools and colleges. College students are first and second year students. Sources say that the students have been identified, as well as there is a possibility that other groups like the locker room were also being run, which have been de-activated.
The Boys’ Locker Room group, which was run on Instagram, has been busted. Students in this group were sharing pornographic photos, videos and chatting. But soon it was exposed. When the case caught fire, the cyber cell of Delhi Police registered an FIR and started the investigation.
Currently one member of this chat group has been arrested. This accused is a minor. Apart from this, a second minor has also been detained, while some students have also been questioned.
Now gradually the layers of this whole matter are opening up. A channel has a conversation with a boy whose friend had sent a screenshot of a chat of his dirty chat by a member of the Boys’ Locker Room group. This boy has told that a boy in the locker room group knew my friend. He sent the screenshot of the locker room group chat to my friend. Seeing these screenshots, my friend told me about all this. Then I informed the rest of the girls about this locker room chat group. These were all school girls who were suffering. When the girls came to know that pornographic photos, videos and chats were being shared in the Boys Locker Room Group on Instagram, they opposed it.
In this way, the lock of the misdeeds of school students started breaking and the screenshots of the chat came out. The cyber cell of Delhi Police started the investigation and according to what has been revealed in the investigation so far, most of the members of the locker room group are school students. However, it has also been reported that there are college students, who are on the radar of the investigation team. That is, the young students were playing this whole bad game together.

Suspect’s mobile seized
Suspected students involved in the group have been contacted by the police and their mobile or other devices have been confiscated. Because most of the minor children are there in this case, they are being treated only under the Juvenile Justice Act. During the investigation, no boy is being called by direct call, but through family or school, the accused are being interrogated.
NCR students also join the group
It has also been found in the investigation of cyber cell that the students of different schools in the group were not only from Delhi but also from NCR. So far, school boys from Delhi and Noida have been identified. All the members of the group did not know each other. By connecting with each other, this group formed. According to cyber cell officials, there are 4 boys who are school students but the age is 18 years, i.e. they are not minors. There is also a student from Noida. They have also been questioned.
After this case came to light, the Cyber Cell of Delhi Police registered an FIR on May 4 under the sections of IT Act and IPC. An accused has been arrested as soon as the cyber cell team proceeded with the investigation of the case. Apart from this, cyber cell has also written to Instagram that details of members of the group should be shared. However, details have not yet been given to the investigation team from Instagram, but a statement has been issued by Insta on this incident.
Instagram has said in its statement that we do not fully allow behavior that promotes sexual abuse or exploits anyone. Insta also said that we take action especially on women and young people, and content that violates our community standards.
