The Delhi police on Tuesday arrested an Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur student for selling the Delhi Public School sex clip on www.baazee.com

"Ravi Raj was arrested from the institute at around 6:30 pm today," Deputy Commissioner of Police Prabhakar said. "He will be presented in the court on Wednesday. We will ask for his custody for further investigation. He will be brought to Delhi."

The 2.37-minute clip, involving two DPS students, was shot using an MMS-enabled mobile phone.

It was passed on from phone to phone all over the country and even abroad.

It was later copied to VCD and sold in Delhi.

According to the police, Raj (23), who is in his eighth semester, bought the VCD from the market and posted it on the Mumbai-based Web site. Eight people bought the VCD from there.

After the scandal became public, a Delhi police team was sent to Mumbai for investigations.

According to Prabhakar, Raj posted the VCD on baazee.com on behalf of Alice Computers, a company that does not exist.

The police traced the email ID through which the clip was sent as attachment and landed on Raj's doorstep.

They also found that two of the buyers were from Delhi.

Some of the buyers made payments through a Web site called www.paisapay.com Some sent cheques to Raj's hostel address: D-225, Rajendra Prasad Hall, IIT-K.

A team then went to the hostel, but was told that Raj had gone home to Hazaribagh, Jharkhand.

The police then got Raj's mobile number from his friends. He was called to meet the registrar of the institute in his office on Tuesday evening.
