The Delhi High Court on Monday directed Delhi Police, Cyber Crime Cell to complete the investigation expeditiously and submit its report in the trial Court in the ‘Bois Locker Room’ matter, while disposing of the plea which had sought directions for the immediate arrest of members of the group and to constitute SIT for investigation.
A division bench presided by Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Talwant Singh of Delhi High Court while conducting hearing through video conferencing has also directed the Central and the State Government to provide security and protection to the Complainants in the case.
The Public Interest Litigation had been filed by Mr. Dev Ashish Dubey through advocates Mr. Omprakash Parihar and Mr. Dushyant Tiwari, alleging that several screenshots were shared by social media user of app called ‘Instagram’ concerning the group “Bois Locker Room”, revealing chat between a group of school students from class 11th and 12th sharing photos of underage women, followed by lurid discussions on their bodies. The group was also allegedly used to share nude/morphed photographs of the women.
The petition had stated that “The expletive-laden chats show the boys discussing having a physical relationship with their classmates as well as rating them on a scale of beauty vs. the size of their breasts and how the latter makes up for any supposed deficiency in the former criteria”.
