Jajpur: Police here have arrested two persons from Balasore for uploading morphed obscene images of a girl on social media.
The arrests were made on Tuesday after the girl’s 48-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide at Banapur village under Jajpur town police limits the previous night after the images went viral.
Police have identified the main accused as Subhankar Dalei (24), a resident of Boulanga area in Balasore district.
