KATHMANDU: Police have initiated an investigation into the unauthorised use of photos in a microblogging site.
Attention of Cyber Bureau of the Nepal Police has been drawn to the unwarranted use of photos — shared by social media users across various social media platforms — in the microblogging site Reddit.
“Necessary analysis and investigation have been initiated into the unauthorised use of user photos — downloaded from various social media platforms — in the microblogging site Reddit,” shared the Bureau.
The site has remained controversial as a platform for people forming groups and communities to discuss objectionable contents where women, including minors, are objectified and sexualised. Nepali women have not been an exception to this, which has taken the shape and form of sexual harassment.
The revelation of such activities in the internet has drawn grave attention of various quarters, questioning the safety of girls and women.
