A classic case of misuse of FacebookMembers who have not been to the Western Ghats in Tamil Nadu, may not be knowing that there is one fabulous town called Pollachi, which is literally on the Kerala border. This town has so many picnic spots and its villages are a big treat to watch. The memorable Amir Khan's "Tanda Matlab Cococola" campaign where he pulls out a full bucket of coca cola safely kept in the cool environs of a well, was actually shot in one of the villages of this town.
Be that as it may, this town has now become infamous for the worst of reasons. Though Facebook is one social media vehicle that can be used so constructively, a gang of four youths had masterminded a strategy to entice young girls studying in a local hostel, though one of the fellows, who looks like a "hero" and after getting the cell number, getting in touch with the particular girl.
The girl would not know that a trap has been laid. She would innocently get into the car. Two other goonda accomplices would film the sexual advances of the hero and threaten to put the photos on all social media. The girl would part with whatever jewellery she would have with her. The threatening would continue for more money. Literally fed up, one girl went to the police station and the gang of four were arrested.
It then turned out that the gang had cheated even married women. How do we deal with such horrible human beings who are worse than barbarians?
