Agartala: A Tripura youth has been arrested for posting nude photographs of his former girlfriend on Facebook after she rejected him, police said here on Sunday.
West Bengal’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) made the arrest.
“A CID team from Kolkata with the help of Tripura Police arrested Arup Deb from Khowai (in western Tripura) and took him to Kolkata on Saturday,” a police official said.
The CID personnel seized four mobile phones and a computer hard disc from the accused.
Deb, 24, graduated from a private IT institution in Kolkata, and is accused of posting on Facebook unclothed photographs of the woman who lives in Malda district of West Bengal.
The woman’s family had earlier filed a police complaint saying Deb posted some indecent photographs after she rejected his proposal.
“Admitting to the crime, Deb told the CID personnel that the woman’s family members abused his family members on phone and that he had taken revenge,” the Tripura Police official added.
