Po­lice act swiftly, ar­rest man be­hind gory rape threat

The New Indian Express - - INDIA -

A Kolkata res­i­dent Ag­niswar Chakraborty gained the city’s bad lime­light for threat­en­ing an Aus­tralia-based wo­man with the gori­est pos­si­ble de­tails of rape af­ter she deleted one of his com­ments from her Face­book pro­file pic­ture. While the vic­tim found it log­i­cal to re­move a stranger’s com­ment from her pic­ture, Ag­niswar treated the delete but­ton as an in­sult. The rape threat com­ment cre­ated such a furor in the so­cial me­dia that the Kolkata po­lice ar­rested Ag­niswar and an­nounced the same on Twit­ter. Po­lice later re­vealed that the ac­cused has been stalk­ing the vic­tim for more than a year. A pe­ti­tion in change.org with 32,700 sup­port­ers also urged the Cal­cutta High Court to give ex­em­plary pun­ish­ment to Ag­niswar.
