An investigation by the Cyber Crime Unit revealed that 27 boys identified in Bois Locker Room case were not part of any conversation on Snapchat.
Among the various screenshots in ‘Bois Locker Room’ chat police found a one to one Snapchat conversation screenshot where a person named 'Siddharth' is suggesting a plan of aggravated assault of a girl to the other person (receiver).
The investigation had revealed that the alleged Snapchat conversation is actually between a girl (sender) and a boy (receiver) in which the girl is sending the chat messages through a fictional Snapchat account named Siddharth, using the fake identity of a male person. The purpose of her sending such chat messages using a fake ID was to check the reaction and character of the receiver.
Due to the availability of the screenshot in different student groups, the Snapchat conversation was mixed up with the ‘Bois Locker Room’ case.
Therefore, the 27 boys identified initially do not have any relation with the Snapchat conversation.
