Bhubaneswar: Days after a sex video featuring two students of a premier engineering college in Odisha capital went viral on WhatsApp, Aditya Raj, the accused, yesterday pleaded innocence saying that he has no idea about the incident.

“I wasn’t involved in making the video viral. She is my girlfriend and I don’t know how the video went viral,” said Aditya.

On the other hand, Aditya has been arrested after a case was registered at the Khandagiri police station. He was produced before court and sent to judicial custody in Jharpada jail here after his bail plea was rejected.

Police have recorded the statement of the girl under Section 161 of the CrPC.

“A case has been registered at Khandagiri police station under IT Act and various sections of IPC. It is a cognizable offence and a person was arrested over circulating the obscene video on social media. Investigation into the matter is on,” said Twin City Commissioner of Police YB Khurania.

According to reports, Aditya has confessed before police that both were in a relationship and the video was recorded two years ago with mutual consent. However, the video was transferred to other device without their knowledge, he told police, adding that the clip was in possession of both.

Aditya also told police that the video was saved in his mobile phone which he used earlier and might have got leaked while he had given the device for repairing, reports said.

While recording her statement before police, the girl also agreed about her relationship with Aditya. However, she feigned ignorance about the clip going viral, reports added.

Aditya, a fourth year B.Tech student hailing from Ranchi, was earlier detained by police for his alleged involvement in circulating the sex video on WhatsApp.
