In an unexpected twist in the Bois Locker Room controversy, Delhi Police's investigation has revealed that the Snapchat screenshot which went viral on social media, is not a part of the Bois Locker Room group chat. Instead, Delhi Police said that the conversation is of a girl sent those texts to a boy by using the fake male profile in order to "test his character".

"Among the various screenshots shared on multiple social media platforms, is a screenshot of a one-to-one Snapchat conversation, where a person named 'Siddharth' is suggesting a plan of sexual assault of a girl to the other person (receiver). The investigation has revealed that the alleged Snapchat conversation is in fact, between a girl who is sending those texts to a boy by using the fake male profile. In the chat, she is suggesting the plan to sexually assault herself," said Delhi Police.

The Delhi Police added that the girl's purpose was to test the character of the boy. "When the Bois Locker Room Instagram screenshots were revealed to others and started circulating on social media, the alleged Snapchat conversation got mixed with it due to its sensational nature and due to its availability on different student groups," read the investigation report.

For the unintiated, leaked screenshots of the private Instagram chat group kicked up a storm last week. The incident came to light after a girl from south Delhi shared a screenshot on social media, exposing the group and scores of similar groups.

She wrote, "A group of south delhi guys aged 17-18 types have this ig gc named "boy's locker room" where objectify and morph pictures of girls their age. 2 boys from my school are a part of it. MY FRIENDS AND I ARE FREAKING OUT THIS IS SO EWWW AND NOW MY MOM WANTS ME TO QUIT IG."

The girl also shared the screenshot of the list of participants of the group and that of their chats where they could be seen sharing pictures of girls and passing comments over them.
