facebook whatsapp icons 1We’re sure that it has happened to us at least once, where we have sent a message to someone we thought was a friend, only to find out that we got the wrong number. Sometimes the contents of the message can be a bit revealing and embarrassing, but usually after a brief bout of embarrassment, we get over it.

Unfortunately the same cannot be said for a man in India who had repeatedly sent the Delhi police pornography via WhatsApp. The Delhi police had setup a WhatsApp account earlier this month where local residents could send in messages to help report corruption, along with audio or video clips to support their case.

However one man had decided to send pornography to the WhatsApp account, but here’s the funny thing, after the first message had been sent, the police replied by advising him to not send such messages to the number in the future. Presumably he had the wrong number and that the contents was intended for someone else.

Despite the warning, the man sent two more messages before he was arrested. He claims that his intentions were to alert the police about the porn industry in hopes that they might put a stop to it, which admittedly does make sense. That being said apart from this little hiccup, reports have suggested that the helpline has been a success and has since led to several investigations of corruption.
