New Delhi: A 19-year-old IIT student was arrested from Bihar on Thursday for allegedly stalking girl students and teachers of a reputed school in Delhi and uploading their morphed pictures on social media, police said.
Mahavir, who hails from Patna, is pursuing B.tech from IIT-Kharagpur. According to the police, he harassed over 50 girl students and teachers of a reputed school in north Delhi.
They said Mahavir used apps for fake caller ID and virtual numbers on WhatsApp to contact the victims. To hide his identity, he also used a voice changing app.
