A young man was brutally murdered and his family left shattered because his Tinder date honey-trapped him, and with her accomplices committed this heinous crime.
Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj, an independent journalist and documentary filmmaker whose work focuses on misuse of gender based laws in India and men’s issues, speaks to Priya Seth and her accomplices. Reports suggest that Priya Seth is a habitual offender and in her own words, she admits to defrauding more than 1000 men using various techniques, including fronting as an escort agency.
The police reveal that for a previous false-rape allegation she was arrested but was released on bail. The police faced difficulty in her case because she is a woman.
Two things are to be noted here. One is that we should be more sceptical about the individuals we meet via online mediums. Secondly, are our laws on rape, extortion, blackmailing lopsided?
Women in our society do face extreme harassment, however, one-sided laws will eventually be misused.
