A team of policemen from Remuna Police Station raided Prashant’s house in Badapala village this afternoon and took him into custody. Cops also seized Prashant mobile phone and other equipment he was using to morph the photographs of women.
Police said the accused had created a fake Facebook account in the name of Gabbar Singh and was busy in posting morphed objectionable photographs of girls on it.

In her complaint the woman accused the account holder of posting her nude photographs on social media and by that destroying her social status.
After tracing the account holder for one month police finally reached the accused today and arrested him.
