Entrapment for Theft

How many people would report a case where they were robbed of all the cash they had, watches and jewelry when trying to meet a women they had contacted for sex? Not many or until there was one. Two boys in Mumbai used to post ads and use social networking to lure such men. Once hooked the “women” instructed these men to meet the two boys who drugged and robbed them.

In this particular case the entrapment was for theft and was a petty crime, but the more serious uses of this technique are for blackmail and espionage. Social networks, dating sites, emails and advertisements are methods used to solicit victims.
