The CID has directed its attention on an organized gang responsible for exchanging explicit photographs and videos via social media.
The criminal investigation department noted that many complaints were received regarding individuals posing to be females and obtaining explicit content from men via Facebook and later threatening them to obtain money.
The latest incident regarding the matter was investigated with regard to a complaint made by an individual working for the Army where explicit photographs were obtained by imposters via Viber.
However, the computer emergency response team notes that people should be vigilant when exchanging personal information with strangers and should be aware of such crimes occurring via social media.
Spokesperson for the computer emergency response team expressed these views regarding the matter.
