India Lucknow police call center tracks mobile Rom

  • Detail

A police call center in Lucknow, India, tracked "Romeo"

a police call center in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India, said that they would receive 700 complaints every day, mainly from women who received entanglement from strange men

in a call center with a glass wall in Lucknow, India, police officers beat computer keyboards to track a special type of crime in India

this practice is called Romeo, which refers to randomly dialing a number until the listener is a woman, in order to start a romantic relationship with the other party. Among these people, there are over enthusiastic suitors (can I charge for your phone bill?), There are timid beggars (I am talking to you, madam, but my body is shaking.) And the occasional heavy breather (I want to do something illegal with you)

looking at the big picture, police officer shatiyawersachuan, who was responsible for investigating harassment complaints, found that a man contacted more than 500 women with eight SIM cards, some of which were registered under false names

police officer shatiya vilsachuan, who was responsible for investigating harassment complaints, found that a man had contacted more than 500 women with eight SIM cards, some of which were registered under false names

it takes a lot of energy to deliberately dial the wrong number to find a girlfriend. But in countries such as Morocco, Papua New Guinea, Bangladesh and India, this practice is becoming increasingly common as traditional gender segregation collides with a wave of cheap new technologies

India has reason to be proud of its revolution. The rate here is the cheapest in the world, and competition has led to a sharp drop in broadband prices. It is estimated that 680million Indians now use it, and 3million new users are added every month. Indian leaders preach that mobile platforms are a sign of social progress and a way to better distribute subsidies and obtain information about health care and agriculture

but an unexpected result is that the social barriers between men and women are collapsing. Reports of harassment have increased exponentially, leading to an increasing number of harassment complaints. However, the data that successfully produced a love with the wrong number, as an American anthropologist said, is unknown

this is a new situation, said Julia Q. Huang, a researcher in the Anthropology Department of the London School of economics. She has written an academic paper on this phenomenon among young women in Bangladesh. It is secretive and risky. It is an attempt to the outside world that they do not have much access to

the police call center in Lucknow, a city in northern India, receives almost 700 calls every day. Most of them are women who complain about the harassment of strange men. According to the Hindustan Times, some recharge stores are selling the numbers of young women to men who are interested in it. Each beautiful woman's number costs 500 rupees (about 53 yuan), while the average woman's number is 50 rupees

not long ago, geetika Chakravarty, 24, called to complain. As a makeup artist, chakravati traveled around the world with his diplomat father when he was growing up. After returning to India from Canada last year, she posted her number in the contact information section of a salon's Facebook page, but because there were so many calls from strange men, she had to black 200 different numbers. High intensity

I don't know what their intentions are. 1. A large number of industrial platforms have also been established: on the 25th of last month, she said. Sometimes they call and say, I love you. Sometimes they call and say, I want to find Sonia. I say I'm not Sonia, and they say, OK, can I talk to you

but one of them is the most persistent, calling threeorfour times a day to urge chakravati to meet him somewhere. When a number was hacked, he called from another number. Chakravati began to worry that he would follow him

I think he sounds like a creepy Indian man, chakravati said

the police found this man by tracking his number. His real name was premsagartiwari, which means the sea of love. Tiwali, 24, is a nervous man with a thin neck. His father worked as a night watchman in a dilapidated public school. The two huts in the corner of the school were where he grew up

young girls in crisp school uniforms came and went outside his window. But the night watchman's son could not approach them

this is how he grew up. Satyavirsachan, a police officer in charge of investigating the case, said that he seemed unable to talk to the girls

SA chuanzai examined the call records of tiwali and found that he used eight SIM cards to contact more than 500 women, some of which were registered under false names. According to police estimates, he spends twoorthree hours a day fighting

after being called to the police station, tiwali immediately confessed everything. He closed his hands and begged the police not to lock himself up. When questioned, he explained that what he played should be better understood as part of his efforts to find a soul mate

as long as there is one person, you can be satisfied, tivari said. I don't even have a person. The person you love must be somewhere, standing at the end. You can find them in some way. When you find someone, you stop looking

he said that he had heard a lot of stories about men and women meeting and getting married on social media

I may be a failed man, he said, but I am very passionate

the police were unmoved and he was detained for 15 days

a diametrically opposite story happened in Bangalore. Umakanti padhan, a round faced 16-year-old female garment factory worker, wanted to call her sister-in-law, but dialed the wrong number and spoke to Bulu, a railway worker 8 years older than her

she was so frightened that she hung up. At home, she was forbidden to talk to any adult male, including her brothers and cousins, since puberty

ten minutes later, Blu called back and said he liked her voice. As soon as I heard your voice, I thought my one appeared, he said. I really want to talk to you all the time

she agreed. Every night, when she shared a room with 11 other young girls in a worker's dormitory in Bangalore, she would slip onto the roof and chat with Bulu about daily chores, such as the shift and what she ate that day

he told me everything he had experienced since he was a child, she said. I don't know whether it's good or bad, but I trust him. I knew he would not betray me

anthropology researcher Julia Q Huang said that some women she met in Bangladesh often enjoyed the pursuit of anonymous strangers in Bangladesh and kept in touch with fiveorsix people at the same time. They told her that contact was safer because it was based on maintaining physical distance. In addition, it forces men on the other side to listen to them for a long time

she said that this is one of those experiences that expand the boundaries, allowing you to consider opportunities you have never had before. She added that young women described the relationship as somewhat frightening and exciting

she said that for young men, randomly dialing numbers is like a lottery and waiting for the results. She said that many times, they almost regard this as a competitive sport, and want to distinguish who is the best person to let women stay away for a long time

as for Padan and her boyfriend, there is no need to start the oil valve to deliver oil for 11 months, but they still haven't met

her roommates turned a blind eye to her naivety

but after work, they also hide in the stairwell or a corner of the roof to play a secret night. From there, people can have a bird's-eye view of the roofs of other dormitories and see figures playing around in all directions. They are young Indians pursuing love in the wide-angle lens
