An 18-year-old woman on Friday lodged a complaint against an unidentified person for allegedly defaming her by hacking her social media accounts and uploading pictures of her.

She is a first-year BCom student from Thane.

She told the police that she suspected one of her friends may have hacked her accounts and uploaded the pictures.
