Probe into fake pictures of Delhi rape victim on site

Kerala police's cyber wing — Hitech Inquiry Cell — has begun a probe into the uploading of the photograph of an engineering student from the state on a social networking site claiming it as the picture of the Delhi gangrape victim.

The investigation followed a complaint from the Kerala girl's father who said the matter had caused distress and pain to his daughter.

Sources in police said an unidentified person had uploaded the photograph of the 21-year-old girl as the rape victim thinking that it was the picture of the Delhi rape victim.

The 21-year-old has the same name which a section of media had given to the Delhi rape victim.

Police are yet to track down the suspect.
