Boys ‘locker room chat’ leaked: Student arrested for casually discussing raping female class fellows
Conversations in the chat group revolved around sexual abuse often against the member’s own female classmates, in a terrifyingly casual way
An Indian schoolboy has been arrested as the police are investigating a horrendous students’ Instagram chat room that talked about the gang rape of schoolgirls.
The group named “Bois Locker Room”, which has instigated huge outrage since it was exposed on Sunday, is deactivated now.
The boy, who is from a well-known Delhi school, has named 20 more boys who were active in the group. The Cyber Cell of Delhi Police has seized his mobile phone.
The scandal surfaced on Sunday when many social media users shared screenshots of the group on Instagram and Twitter of “Bois Locker Room”, which had 100 members. A girl shared screenshots forwarded to her by a member who had just been added to the group.
Soon after that, the shockingly offensive content went viral on several social media platforms.
Conversations in the group revolved around sexual abuse often against the member’s own female classmates, in a terrifyingly casual way. It has raised concerns across India about the normalizing of rape, misogyny, and objectification in schools.
One of the posts read, “I can rape her so easily.”

The screenshots also showed students posting photos of teenage girls without their permission along with comments too harsh to be repeated.
A 19-year-old female student registered a complaint when she discovered her pictures had been shared on the group.
According to social media users who posted the screenshots, they were threatened by the members of the group to leak nude photographs of them.
