Already media is full of the negative impact of social media. While it is helpful in many situations, there is collateral damage due to it for sure. Many gullible men and women are falling prey to Facebook and Instagram friends.
One such incident occurred in Hyderabad, where a boy and a girl became friends. Slowly, the guy started talking about marriage, and the girl started visiting his house. The man, B Prakash, 21, is a resident of Rd No 2, Banjara Hills. Eventually, they got into a physical relationship as the girl believed that they would be getting married soon.
Prakash assaulted the victim on several occasions on the pretext of marriage. A few days ago, the girl found out that Prakash was also having a relationship with another girl. She confronted him, and Prakash then refused to marry her, citing various reasons.
The victim then approached the Medchal police, who registered a zero FIR, and transferred the case to Banjara Hills police, who re-registered a case and arrested Prakash.
Ironically, despite the best efforts of police and NGOs and stories in the media, such incidents of violation only seem to be increasing. Unless and until strict action is taken against offenders, it looks like some will stoop down to committing such heinous acts.
