Three-year jail to manager for uploading morphed pictures of woman on Facebook

BHOPAL: Senior manager of a private company was sentenced to three years in prison for creating a fake facebook account of a married woman and uploading her morphed nude pictures on it.

Additional district judge HS Yadav sentenced 45-year-old Dilip Chauke, resident of Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, for morphing the pictures of a woman and uploading them on social media site Facebook.

Judge called his behaviour “vile and disgusting” during the last hearing on Saturday. Court has also slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 on the convict while sentencing him to rigorous imprisonment.

A 40-year-old woman had approached state cyber cell on January 1, 2013 alleging that unidentified person has created a Facebook profile using her name, address and morphed pictures to defame her.

Cybercrime investigators communicated with the headquarters of the social networking site and collected IP address of the computer that was used to create the profile.

The IP address was traced to complainant’s neighbour Dilip Chauke. During initial questioning Chauke feigned ignorance about the matter but later gave up to strong interrogation by the top officials. He was arrested under provisions of Section 419, 469, 471 of IPC and Section 67 of IT Act.

“He created a Facebook account of the woman and uploaded her morphed images along with obscene as well as false information, besides her address,” said an investigating officer wishing anonymity.
