Mumbai: On the eve of the International Women’s Day, the ladies staffers of the Nashik Municipal Corporation were startled on seeing obscene videos and pictures on the cellphones provided by the civic body. According to sources, 30 employees of the Nashik Municipal Corporation and 10 employees of the Malegaon Municipal Corporation were given brand new cellphones to upload vaccination data.
The employees were also trained for the purpose. When the devices were handed to the staff, the women were shocked to see obscene pictures and videos downloaded on the handsets, besides the software to get the assigned work done.
The women alerted the senior officials, who collected the phones for rectification, which revealed the obscene content was downloaded last year. Up to seven devices had obscene content. Police suspect the gadgets were not the new ones, but refurbished pieces, which might be the reason behind the rude shock. Further investigation is underway.
