Bangalore, Jul 15: A victim of a love relationship turned sour was denied a job with the Intelligence Bureau (BU) after the agency conducted a background research on her.
Soumya (name changed) the victim had filed a complaint with the police after her boyfriend uploaded videos and photographs of their intimate relationship on the internet, which later came to be known as the Karavali-MMS scandal.
The controversy came haunting her after she applied with the Central Intelligence Bureau for a post of inspector.
Though she was appointed for the post and received an appointment letter, later when the IB conducted a background check on her, they issued a notice to the victim claiming that she was rejected.
"The post she was selected for is very crucial and candidates should be of high caliber in all aspects," said a senior officer from the department.
The victim was in an intimate relationship Ashwath Goankar, a businessman from a influential family. Soumya wanted to part ways after the relationship started souring in 2010 but adamant Gaonkar was stern that she be in a relationship with.
Furious that the victim changed her number and avoided him, her boyfriend decided to upload their clips on the internet. Gaonkar was later picked up by the Cyber Crime from Dhrawad and charged under sections 66-67 of the IT act.
Despite of several complaints by Sowmya against the accused, the latter somehow managed to slip through each time because of his rich background. Though the Cyber Crime Cops helped Sowmya and nabbed the culprit, her career seems to have blackballed her this time.
