Bhubaneswar: With rising cases of young girls being exploited by their friends who record their intimate moments, the State Commission for Women (SCW) in
Orissa has asked all college-goers to be "very careful" about their boyfriends.

"This is a serious matter and a new trend in Orissa. We will sensitise girls through a state-wide campaign," SCW Chairperson Jyoti Panigrahi told reporters.

The matter relating to circulation of pornographic CDs involving college girls came to light after a 22-year-old girl committed suicide last year in Cuttack. She found her
nude pictures in a CD allegedly made by her friend who had captured some of their intimate moments.
He was later arrested by police. Three more girls fell victim to the porn CD racket in
Dhenkanal district last month. In all the cases, the boys allegedly took nude pictures of the girls after winning their confidence, Panigrahi said.
Besides porn CD cases in Cuttack and Dhenkanal, a similar incident came to light in Balangir district also. One of the girls in Dhenkanal recently attempted to
commit suicide after finding her nude pictures in a CD available in the local market, she said.
