Stranger than fiction

Many people are surprised that such a thing has happened in India. Some people have opined that it is difficult to digest that a girl will strip on WhatsApp in the hope of getting a job in a hotel.

The techie has told the police that as his wife was working in the office in the daytime and he had a night shift, he was getting bored. He hit on this idea just to keep himself busy. The New Indian Express has reported that nearly 60 of the victims are from Hyderabad.

Last word

The internet is flooded with pornographic material. Despite the best efforts of the government of India, it is difficult to police the net. Perhaps, the accused would have gone scot-free, in case the girl from Hyderabad had not reported to the police. Many people wonder about the sort of girls who stripped before the camera, just to land a job in a five-star hotel. This shows the prevalent culture in India where promiscuity is on the rise. A Major -General has just been dismissed for sexual harassment. India is home to the largest Film industry in the world. This lends glamour to everyday life fuelling the imagination of women, who wish to rise in life and get a job by any means.
