The posters were pasted across university campus wall, railway station and bus stand, where people in large group gathered to watch them.
It is not clear whether the pictures were real or morphed or if the mobile numbers as displayed are not genuine. The police are, however, dubious that this could be a case of a spurned love story.
A manhunt to nab the culprit behind the indecent act was launched by the city crime branch on Monday, Jan 30. Jitendra Singh, DSP (crime) said that the police was aware of the posters and the crowds they were attracting. He said that no case was registered though the investigation was in progress.
"The perpetrator can also be a mentally sick or a jilted lover venting frustration in such manner," said Singh.
The girls in the posters also bear false names and the mobile numbers provided are also active even after so many days.
"Public decency is maintained even in western countries having an open society. The police should find out the number and person(s) behind it," said Upma Rai, Commission chairperson.
