The Mysuru City police have arrested Jayant Kumar, a final year student of University of Mysore for uploading his classmates' photographs on a porn website, on Thursday. 

Jayant (24) in his confession made to the police said that he was upset by his classmates of Environment Science Department, University of Mysore, for teasing him. Apparently, the girls would call him as a henchman of a particular professor. Annoyed at this, Jayant wanted to teach them a lesson and thus uploaded their photographs on a porn website along with their phone numbers.

The incident came to light when girls began to receive calls seeking sexual favours. To their horror, they found their photographs along with their numbers on a website that helped sex workers and clients to get in touch, online.

It may be recalled here that early this week, the victims had written to the university registrar suspecting a professor's role in uploading their photos on the website. Their grouse was that the professor did not give them good internals despite doing good and when questioned about it, he would threaten them. The professor allegedly warned the unrelenting girls that he would go to any extent to teach them a lesson. This made the girls suspect his handiwork.
