Operating since 2010 Ethical Hackers Club one through cases where people steal pictures from profiles of Girls and creating the fake accounts. Most recent was the case when a boy created a fake account using a girls picture adding her own name with an extra word claiming her to be a prostitute. Although Ethical Hackers Club is formed to provide support to such victims, why are such cases at the edge in India? It's all actually a flaw in the privacy laws & awareness among people. While Ethical Hackers Club is working hard to increase awareness we do believe Privacy laws to be stronger enough to punish such people.
While India isn't the only one, highly tech savvy world out there is facing the same problem. It's never the case only in India, We have started the firm to support victims & Awareness in India but we have received the similar cases from Dubai, United Kingdom, Australia, Africa & Mexico. As it's very difficult to find solutions for such cases improvement in privacy laws can play a vital role in reducing such cases.
The Rule Passed by Spain's Supreme Court can be a good example for law enforcement agencies & judiciary of every nation.

The Supreme Court of Spain bans the media from posting photos of Facebook without permission

Spain's Supreme court believes it's an unlawful act against the privacy & the right of the person over his own picture. And It's important to take permission from the owner of the picture before posting it over media platforms. 
The Court passes the judgment stating that for posting the picture of the person from his/her facebook profile to a newspaper requires his express consent since it can be an illegitimate intrusion into his/her right to own image.
The Supreme Court has condemned "La Opinión de Zamora" to compensate with 15,000 euros to a man whose photograph obtained from his Facebook account was published on the cover, in its paper edition, to illustrate a news about an event of which it was the protagonist. The court considers that the newspaper destroyed the reputation of the affected person. It was a report stating that the Plaintiff had been wounded by his brother with a firearm. In addition, it counted that the author of the shot had committed suicide.
The news, published by "La Opinión-El Correo de Zamora" on July 8, 2013, contained data that allowed the complainant to be identified. The Supreme Court in the sentence Says,  "The profile holder has 'uploaded' a photograph of him on Social Media account accessible to the general public, does not authorize a third party to reproduce it in a medium without the consent of the owner", "Such action can not be considered a natural consequence of the accessible nature of data and images in a public profile of a social network on the Internet," It adds.

The sentence adds that "the consent of the owner of the image so that the general public, or a certain number of people, can see his photograph in a blog or an account opened on the web of a social network does not entail authorization to use Of that photograph and publish it or disclose it in a different way ".
While The Supreme Court of Spain also clarifies that "the account holder can not file a complaint against the Social Media company that provides the services of the electronic platform where the social network operates because a third party has access to that photograph whose access, or redundancy, was public."
The newspaper is condemned not to republish the photo on any medium and to remove it from any copies found in its archives. As for the right to privacy, the Supreme Court asserts that the newspaper did not incur "any morbid excess".

Can It Be A Lesson For Indian Media Too?
