This is a story that we are doing with utmost care and caution and has involved weeks of research and undercover reporting. Nevertheless as contents of this report are disturbing and shocking, but at the same time these are of immense public relevance.

Over the weeks that our reporters went undercover to find out the reality behind this filth, shocking disclosures came to the fore. The We can now reveal that an organised gang of crooks is behind a massive porn scandal that is growing in Srinagar with each passing day.

Everyday many clips of young men and women in compromising positions exchange hands through cell phone transfers and via Bluetooth. Many a times these clips are sold for as little as Rs. 10 or as high as Rs. 500 with buyers available across the valley.

Disturbingly many of these clips have boys and girls from well to do and educated families who in the adolescence end up committing the biggest blunder of their lives. It is worth mention here that a young girl from central Kashmir district ended up committing suicide when a similar porn clip of hers surfaced and went viral across the valley recenty.

Such is the organised way of this business that memory chips full of local pornographic material are now available for sale. Interestingly, rarely in the clips is the face of the man or boy revealed. In majority of the cases it is the girls/women who are filmed with cell phones and then the clips are made public property.

We can also reveal that in this scam many cyber café owners and mobile sale/repair shops are involved. It is at these places that these clips are downloaded and then turned into small files that can be easily transferred from one cell phone to the other.

In many cases the girls who have been filmed are also reportedly blackmailed for money and other material gains. Investigations have revealed that once their clips begin to appear in public many girls also have lost their mental balance fearing disgrace in the society.

We had earlier reported how similar clips were on sale in and around the botanical gardens. But so far this menace has not ended. It seems that an organised group of young men lure young girls from schools and colleges and take then to hotels or secluded spots and then film them, sometimes forcibly. These young girls either willingly or out of fear then strip and get filmed, little knowing that they would soon become a public spectacle.

According to the investigations, there have also been cases where young girls have been drugged and then filmed in various compromising positions.

Those, whom we spoke to, were almost unanimous in saying that lack of parental control and unrestricted use of cell phones and internet had added to this social disease. “We have seen many cases wherein young boys and girls are roaming during school hours. It is also very important for parents to keep a tab on what their children are doing. All this is happening right under their noses”, says a senior police officer.

In a tiny locality in Srinagar, police was called out by the residents after young boys and girls in uniforms were seen chatting and getting intimate in dingy by-lanes.
