The Mumbai Police have arrested a 22-year-old MBA student for allegedly hacking the social media accounts of a female medical student and sending her pictures clicked with her boyfriend to her family members, an official said here on Wednesday. He was arrested late night on Tuesday from Daund in Pune district, he said.

”The accused was nabbed after the victim, who is a medical student in a college attached to the KEM hospital, lodged a complaint. The incident came to light after the victim realised that someone had hacked her e-mail account, Instagram and Google password and sent her pictures clicked with her boyfriend to her family members,” senior inspector Jitendra Pawar of Bhoiwada police station here said.

During the probe, the police came to know that the girlfriend of the accused was studying with the victim. The former objected to the victim bringing her boyfriend to their college. She asked the victim several times that she should meet her boyfriend outside the college. But since she did not stop, the girlfriend of the accused hatched a plan to teach the victim a lesson, he said. As per their plan, the accused hacked the victim’s social media accounts and sent her photos with boyfriend to her parents, Pawar said, adding that following the complaint the police launched a probe.

”With the help of technical inputs, police nabbed the accused from his residence. He was arrested under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 354-D (stalking) and other sections of the Information Technology (IT) Act, the official said. Further investigation is underway, he added.
