'Bois Locker Room' And Gangrape Talk Were 2 Unrelated Incidents, Girl Was Behind Chat: Delhi Police

The Delhi Police's investigation into the ‘Bois Locker Room’ case has thrown up a new twist into the entire episode. According to the Cyber Cell, the alleged gang rape conversation did not happen in the ‘Bois Locker Room’ chat group.

In fact, it did not even on the same social media platform. While the ‘Bois Locker Room’ was a chat group on Instagram, the alleged conversation about gang-raping a girl was between two individuals on Snapchat. 

It somehow got mixed up with the screenshots after the “Bois Locker Room” chats emerged and it went viral on social media giving the impression that the boys were discussing about sexually assaulting a girl. 

The twist in the tale doesn't even end there. The person in the Snapchat conversation who initiated the talk about the gang-rape was a girl, the sake girl whom the two were discussing about sexually assaulting. 

The girl sent messages to the boy through a fake account to test him. 

"Investigation has revealed that the alleged conversation is actually between a girl (sender) and a boy (receiver) in which the girl is sending chat messages through a fictional account in a social media named 'Siddharth'. Using the fake identity of a male person, she suggested in the chat, a plan to sexually assault herself," said Anyesh Roy, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Cyber Cell.

He further said that the purpose of her sending such messages using a fake identity was to check the reaction of the receiver and "the strength of his character, especially when someone talks bad things about the girl herself." The DCP said, 

"The receiver, also a juvenile, declined to participate in any such plan suggested by 'Siddharth' and stopped further communication with 'him'. Then he sent a screenshot of the messages and showed it to his friends, including the girl about whom the hypothetical conversation of sexual assault took place.

However, the girl, being aware of the fact that the account of 'Siddharth' was created by herself, did not report it to anyone. Meanwhile, one of the other recipients of the screenshot posted it as a separate story, from where it started circulating in connected social media accounts of friends, schoolmates, etc." 

"When the Bois Locker Room screenshots were revealed to others and started circulating on social media, the alleged previous conversation also got mixed with it due to its sensational nature and due to its availability in different student groups," 

Roy added while saying that efforts are being made to identify and examine/interview the remaining members of the group at the earliest.
