Social media is a great way to meet new people and make friends. It provides us a platform to stay connected with our old friends and make new ones. But care must be taken care of while getting close with strangers. This has been taught by our parents from childhood.
Police also ask people to be alert while communicating with strangers. One should not trust any person they meet on Facebook. Faking an account and then misusing it for criminal activities isn’t new. One such incident happened with a Jaipur girl who fell in love with a boy on Facebook.
She came all the way from Jaipur to Delhi to meet the guy. He promised her that he will make her meet his family so that they take their relationship to another level. She believed in what he said. And came to meet him without telling her parents. But she didn’t know what was waiting for her.
However, the parents got worried after noticing her absence and filed a missing complaint. After which Jaipur police sought help from Delhi Police. Police carried out search operations. Later the boy was arrested from Mahipalpur.
