Pune: In a disturbing incident, a man allegedly leaked obscene photos of a woman online after she stopped speaking to him. The incident came to light on Tuesday night around 10 PM.

The Lonikand police have registered a case against the 33-year-old man under the IT Act and for outraging the modesty of a woman.

The 32-year-old victim lodged a complaint at Lonikand police station on Wednesday, leading to the registration of the case against Sagar Mahadev Kale (33).

According to the police, the accused and the complainant previously lived in the same neighborhood in Hadapsar and were acquainted with each other.
