Out of 126 persons, who were made respondents in different cases dealt by the SHE Teams, 20 of them were minors. Cyberabad police booked 4 FIRs and 25 petty cases.
In one of the four FIRs, a woman residing in Balanagar, approached police alleging that a man blackmailed her claiming that he has her private photos and he will defame her. He forced her to attend video calls in the absence of her husband. Police officials nabbed him after the accused barged into her house when her husband was not at home.
