New Delhi: Orkut seems to have become the new favourite with on-line mischief makers as yet another case of misuse of the social networking website has come to light with a schoolgirl complaining that her fake profile has been posted on it.
The girl’s father, a student of a South Delhi school, has approached the Cyber Cell of Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing after the family began receiving vulgar calls.
The web-page describes the teenager as a "sex teacher" and has obscene photographs and contact details such as her home address and telephone numbers, police said.
NET ISSUES: Many cases of Orkut misuse have come to in the recent past.
This is the second incident that has come to light about Orkut misuse in Delhi in less than three weeks.
Earlier this month, an air-hostess had moved a court here alleging that someone has opened an account in her name on Orkut wherein she is being described as a "sex-struck woman".
The teenager's family had received the first call almost a month ago where the caller wanted to speak to the girl. Similar calls poured in later, the police said, adding all the callers referred to Orkut.
The family had a harrowing time when two strangers knocked at their door a fortnight ago and told them the girl had invited them for sex through Internet, they added.
Police said a case has been registered and investigations were on.
