BENGALURU: A 34-year-old Jakkur businessman filed a criminal complaint against a fellow Clubhouse member for allegedly posting nude morphed photos of him in another room of the social audio app.
The first criminal case involving Clubhouse, which creates platforms or rooms for its members to interact, was filed by Bengaluru city cybercrime police.
According to Kushal Kumar, accused Yeshwanth Reddy, a member of a Clubhouse group, posted his morphed pictures in another room on the app. When Reddy abused a female member of the group, Kumar became enraged. Angry, Reddy took naked pictures of Kumar and posted them in the group.
Kumar told police that he was in a Clubhouse room with his friends around 5.30 pm on August 5. Reddy is accused of using sexually abusive language toward a female member.
“I asked Reddy about it. The same night, Reddy and his friends formed a group, took my photograph from Clubhouse, and morphed it. He took my naked photo, attached it to a naked woman, and displayed it in his Clubhouse room. My friend Manjunath and I inquired about the posting of my morphed photos with Reddy. He abused both Manjunath and me,” Kumar stated. Reddy was charged with criminal intimidation and cybercrime by police.
