The police have detained a Delhi schoolboy, and more have been identified as they investigate a horrific students' Instagram group chat that talked about the rape of schoolgirls. The group named "Bois Locker Room" was exposed on Sunday has caused huge outrage and is deactivated now. The teen, from a well-known Delhi school, has identified 20 more boys who were active in the group. The Cyber Cell of Delhi Police has seized his mobile phone.

The schoolboys belonging to Class 11 and 12 from four to five schools, casually talked about rape, sexual objectification, and slut-shamed school girls on the chatroom.
The cybercrime section of the police has requested the Facebook-owned Instagram for details on the group. 
Several social media users posted screenshots of the 'Bois Locker Room' conversation on Instagram and Twitter. The group is believed to have 100 members, and a girl posted screenshots sent to her by a member of the group who was just added. She was one of the first to expose the group and pointed out the underage targets of the group. The shockingly offensive content went viral like fire in the forest.

When a 19-year-old college student from Delhi discovered her images shared on the chatroom, she filed a complaint. The screenshots revealed students from some of Delhi's top schools sharing images of girls without their consent, along with comments too raw to be established. Several conversations revolved around sexual topics often about sexual assault against their own classmates, in a frighteningly casual way. "I will rape her easily," read one of the posts. The hashtag #BoysLockerRoom trended on social media, drawing thousands of posts.
