Victim Photos of BPO Murder in Bangalore fake?

On December 13th, a BPO call centre agent has been raped and killed in Bangalore by a man who pretended to be her night driver. She worked for HP. The case is still in the the newspapers, because Bangalore was always considered to be very peaceful.

Yesterday a friend e-mailed me horrifying photos of a dead female body full of blood an a lot of bystanders in the background. This e-mail spreads around the IT-companies in Bangalore right now, saying it showed the victim of the BPO murder.

I had a closer look at the EXIF-metainformation of the photos. The „date taken“ field was from 13th August 2005, 5:40pm (taken with a Finepix S7000 camera).

That could mean the photos were taken four months before the murder. So either the camera was not set correctly, or they showed a different case.

When I get e-mails forwarded, I always try to be very suspicious about their authenticity. Many turn out to be fake or urban legends, the modern fairytales.

Update: rootburn points out two articles about the BPO murder, stressing that the outsourcing industry is shocked about what happend.

  1. Hi,
    The photos you saw were of a murder which happend a while ago in Mumbai. The girl’s throat was slit in broad daylight, by a lunatic, and the pictures show her body being lugged away.

  2. Hello,

    The photos you saw are not someone from bangalore. She is a nepali girl who was brutally murdered in broad daylight at „gateway fo india“ (Colaba-Mumbai).
