Phone numbers stolen from school’s WhatsApp group to send obscene messages to Una’s daughters
The administration of a public school in the Una district of Himachal Pradesh lodged a complaint with the police against an unknown disbeliever for invading WhatsApp groups intended for study and sending objectionable messages to female students . The school, located in the Daulatpur Chowk area of Una District, is running online classes as schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each class has its own WhatsApp groups to disseminate information related to their classes and other relevant activities.
According to police, school officials said in their complaint that a malefactor entered a WhatsApp group by creating a fake ID and then started sending objectionable messages to girls on WhatsApp by putting the photo of the teacher as profile picture.
The girls were upset after repeatedly receiving reprehensible messages from the disbeliever. They complain to the school administration. The school administration made efforts to catch the mischievous element but failed. The administration later lodged a complaint with the Daulatpur Chowk Police Station.
The school principal said that the school administration had filed a complaint with the police so that said malicious element could be caught as soon as possible.
Daulatpur Chowk Police Station Pradeep Singh said the school administration filed a complaint about the matter. He said the complaint had been sent to the cybercrime cell for further investigation.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools are physically closed for more than a year and school authorities are forced to conduct classes and other study-related work using online tools. However, it has been observed that criminals and hackers attempt to enter WhatsApp groups and Zoom courses to disrupt the proper functioning of online courses. In many cases, police officers caught those trying to disrupt classes and harass students.
