Baripada: Close on the heels of an obscene video of a girl and a boy from Baripada going viral on social media, one more similar case has cropped up from the same place. Baripada Town Police today arrested a youth from Baiganabadia of the district in connection with the incident involving  another girl who was blackmailed after an obscene video of her went viral.

According to the complaint lodged by the girl’s family members with the Town Police, the tormentor is a student of a private college in Baripada who had been blackmailing a girl of the same college threatening to make her private obscene videos public.

After a search, police was able to nab the accused from Baiganabadia while further investigation is on into the incident, sources said.

Shockingly, this is the second instance in Baripada in a span of two days. On Wednesday, a video which had objectionable content of a boy and a girl being forced to strip naked came to the fore after going viral on social media. Three youths were later arrested after the girl’s father knocked the doors of Sadar police and registered a complaint with them.

In a similar incident reported from Keonjhar today, the video of a woman being forced by miscreants to strip inside a forest has gone viral on social media. The incident reportedly happened two years back.

Asked, Keonjhar SP Rajesh Pandit said,"The video which has gone viral is an old one. The girl in the video is clear whereas the persons involved in torturing her could not be identified from the video. A case has been registered at the Town Police station. We are investigating into the matter and the accused will be soon arrested."
