Leaked videos is cyber stalking
Some friends have been sharing a video of a girl dancing. It is titled ‘Geo News female anchor club dance leaked video’. People are also commenting on this video – mostly obscene comments.
The majority of us have stooped so low that we enjoy looking at things that are personal and only for selected viewing. This is an extremely sensitive issue and comes under stalking – cyber stalking – which is a serious offence.
The draft of the Cybercrime Bill 2015 http://goo.gl/lcVybz says that cyber stalking will be ‘punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years or with fine which may extend to one million rupees, or with both’.
The video in question seems to be from the girl’s personal collection which someone got hold of, probably by hacking her accounts, and now spreading it on the Internet.
The criminals sharing this video are perverts and should be dealt with strictly.
To add spice to the whole mix, the words ‘Geo News anchor’ have also been added to the title, ensuring that people click on it to see the content.
Stealing someone’s personal content and then posting it on a public forum is a crime. But this video seems to be part of the defamatory campaign that is running on the Internet for more than a year. However, it is not fair to use someone’s personal content to run a public campaign.
Supreme Court should take action against such people and stop them from spreading people’s personal content without their permission and knowledge.
