With the advent of technological development in the country, Indian citizens are becoming accustomed to the digital world. And one of the best things that the technological development gave us is the social media that has offered us a platform to exchange personal and professional information with one another. From Facebook to Instagram, the benefits of social media have created a frenzy among the users all over the world such that it has helped people everywhere in one way or the other.
Apparently, an Indian mother made the best use of these social networking applications in order to find her daughter’s molester. Yes! You read that right! According to media reports, the mother of a 15-year-old girl used Instagram to nab the 15-year-old who allegedly physically harassed her daughter in July 2018.
Well, the incident of the sexual assault took place on July 21, 2018, when the 15-year-old girl’s school mate invited her home. However, when the girl got to her friend’s home, she noticed that her classmate’s parents were out for dinner and she was only with her brother. Later, her friend also went out to her uncle’s place for dinner and the victim was left alone in the home with the brother. What happened next will send shock waves down your spine.
Her classmate’s brother, who was of the same age as hers, forced himself on her and tried to hug her. As they were alone in the home, the boy sexually assaulted the girl in order to kiss her. Fortunately, she managed to push him away and run outside the house to her home. But she got extremely traumatized after the incident.
The mother came to learn about the incident when she inquired about it after seeing a change in her behavior post the horrific event took place. The mother immediately went on to the social media profiles of her daughter in order to catch the culprit and there she found something unexpected.
The mother noticed a series of lewd messages on her daughter’s profile and there she found the culprit. Making the best use of her smartness, she posed as her daughter on the social media and replied to the dirty messages of the teen boy. Thereby, she managed to get the boy to confess his crime that had disturbed her daughter to the very core.
The mother filed a complaint against the boy at the DB Marg police station on August 3. The accused has been booked under the sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for molestation, IT Act and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. The boy is currently at a remand home in the Dongri area of Mumbai.
Now, that’s how an Indian mother saved her daughter by making the best use of social media. Kudos to her!
