A shocking sex scandal came to light in Tamil Nadu where over 50 woman were lured on social media and then sexually harassed by a group of four people in Pollachi. They are suspected to be rapists in Pollachi rape case as a video of Pollachi girl crying or pleading with perpetrators has gone viral on the internet.

The matter came to light three weeks ago after the four accused, all in their 20s, were arrested in February for allegedly blackmailing and sexually harassing a 19-year-old girl.

The accused have been identified as K Thirunavukkarasu (27), N Sabarirajan (25) aka Rishwanth, N Sathish (29) and T Vasanthakumar (24). The mobile phones seized from the accused had videos of at least 40 women who the accused had allegedly blackmailed for money and sexual favours.

The accused were booked under Sections 354 (A) [sexual harassment], 354 (B) [assault or use of criminal force] of the IPC read with 66 (E) of IT Act and Section 4 of Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act.
