An extortion racket involving a four-member gang and the dozens of women they sexually assaulted and blackmailed has been unearthed in Tamil Nadu. Dozens of women were befriended on Facebook and then lured by the gang and sexually assaulted. The men would film these incidents and then resort to blackmailing the victims to not report the incident otherwise threatening to release the video online.
Now a video of a random Instagram user blaming the girls for falling prey for the men surfaced. In the video the man seen saying that the girl maybe complained it to his family while they were friends in Facebook. “You created a chance for them to commit this crime and there is no point in raising questions now. You girls are always trying to compete with men. By using Tik Tok and all you girls are exposing everything to many. If you want to live by UK culture , you go reside there.” says the guy in his video.
