DCW issues notice to police and Instagram over a group of minors sharing objectionable pictures and discussing rape

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) in India has sent notices to the Delhi Police and Instagram over a group on the social media platform called ‘Bois Locker Room’. The group was allegedly discussing rape and sharing objectionable pictures of minors. DCW Chairperson, Swati Maliwal, described the incident as ‘very serious’, as an open media platform was used for illegal activities. The conversations were exposed after one of the members of the group took screenshots and shared it with someone else. The Instagram thread was then posted on social media by one of the girls who was targeted. Investigators have found that the group had 22 members, out of which two were adults. 

The administrator of the Bois Locker Room has been arrested and the police have asked Instagram for more information.
