An Army jawan from Rohtak has been detained after he was allegedly honey trapped by a woman posing as 'Anika Chopra' on Facebook and claiming to be a 'Captain' in the Army Medical Corps.

The jawan is deployed with the Tank unit in Jaisalmer. 

The woman used to talk to him and send lewd messages and even pictures.

She was in touch with him since 2016.

A unit of the Military intelligence detained the jawan when he was allegedly caught sending pictures and location of exercise and other things, including Arjun Tanks, to the woman.

Army Chief General Bipin Rawat had on January 10 spoken about the misuse of social media and had made it clear that it would attract action.  

Sources said that the Army has found fake profiles of leading Bollywood actresses used to woo jawans. The FB profiles of some more jawans are under watch.
