Police officer Vipin Tamrakar told that Arvind Gupta had done this crime. A criminal mindset of stalking had taken over Gupta and thus he planned to use Facebook as a weapon in this. The criminal used to visit complainant’s house and was familiar with her. But suddenly, Puja’s relatives told her that they received many wrong and improper messages by her name through her FB Id.

Little did he knew that he is going to be trapped in his own created circle. Cyber police expressed a deep concern over this crime as such type of cases are increasing day by day. They suggested to keep the passwords of social media accounts as alphanumeric so that hacker cannot easily hack Facebook accounts.

Logging out is the key aspect and one should not forget it. Cyber Police instructed to use privacy settings and be careful while posting personal images. Thus, one should be aware about cyber security and not get trapped into hacking and cyber stalking.
