Dubai, Mar 5 (ANI): An Indian teenager has admitted to have escaped death at the hands of a Facebook gang called ”Death Room”, which tortures rich school age kids and extorts money from them.

The boy claimed that it was his cheap mobile phone that saved him from the members of the horrendous gang.

The gang members assumed he came from a middle class family so they would not gain by extorting money from them.

The ”Death Room” gang consisted of three people of unknown nationalities and two Pakistanis.

Sharjah Police arrested the gang members last week, reports The Gulf News.

The gang used to loiter around expensive schools and targeted children from affluent families.

According to the police, the victims were usually between the age group of 12 to 15 years, and the gang members are between the ages of 20 and 25.

The Indian teenager also said that the gripping pictures and footage of young boys being tortured on Facebook by the gang members were quite popular among school age kids. (ANI)
