Taruna Aswani , a Mumbai girl was threatened by a cyber bully who told her he would leak private photos and videos that she had allegedly sent to her boyfriend. But she decided not to bow down to the cyber bully instead , she shared the screenshots of the mail and is trying to spread the word about the man.
The bully wrote in an email that he has access to all the private pics and videos that she had sent to her partner and the only way to prevent him from making these public is to “excite” him.
In most of the cases , it has been seen that people choke down under these situations and take drastic steps like suicide or provide an undue advantage to the bully to avoid the societal pressure and honor- shame . But in this case , Taruna instead of hiding has asked the world to “share this post with as many people as you know to get the word out” so that someone, somewhere might be able to locate the “sick pervert.”
“I have access to your all your friends/social media and family and co-workers…contacts that u have and I think some will be happy and some embarrassed to see it”
Here is the post that she shared :
“Dear Friends and Family,
I am posting this and emailing you individually as my online identity has been compromised.
I have in the last 24 hours received 2 emails from someone that claims to know me that has hacked into my google cloud back up. He has been threatening to release some private pictures and videos of me to my friends family and colleagues.
As embarrassing as the videos may be ( they were sent to my boyfriend at the time ) I choose to stand up to this man. Instead of cowering down to his requests. I do this so that other women may take a lesson to stand up to bullies and low life’s like this and may get the confidence to stand up as well in case he is known to us and is targeting all of us, but we’re either too scared, ashamed or clueless in how to manage or handle such situations.
I implore you to share this post with as many people as you know to get the word out. Perhaps someone may be able to locate this person through his
digital footprint.Please help me in nabbing this sick pervert.
If you find any information on this, please inbox me so I can report it to the Detective working on the case or you may contact him directly
on +1 301 699 2601 and mention my name for reference.
Grateful for your help in this, I have enclosed along with this screen shots of his emails- I have deleted the photos/videos he had attached.
Thanks for all your help and support in this.
